A 16-year-old Chuckey-Doak High School student was charged Thursday afternoon with reckless endangerment after a wadded-up ball of paper was thrown out of a moving school bus at another vehicle, Greeneville police Officer Jeff Sowers said.
The student was returning to the high school about 3 p.m. Thursday from the Greene Technology Center.
The bus was on the U.S. 11E Bypass when wadded paper held together with electrical tape was thrown out a bus window and struck a truck next to the bus, Sowers said.
The truck was not damaged, and no one was injured, he said.
The bus returned to the Technology Center, where the student was removed and questioned by officers.
"Other kids dared him to do it," Sowers said.
The student was issued a summons to appear in Greene County Juvenile Court, and released to his father.
