AL.com (http://bit.ly/SD47Ax) reports 19-year-old Mendrell Porter was arrested Tuesday after police responded to calls about shots fired at a school bus. Porter is charged with throwing or shooting a deadly or dangerous missile at an occupied vehicle.
Authorities say 12 Foley Middle School students and a bus driver were aboard the bus, and no injuries were reported.
