WASHINGTON | A 19-year-old D.C. man who stole a Metrobus and crashed it into a tree has been placed on 18 months probation and ordered to perform 200 hours of community service.

William Jackson entered the plea in September and was sentenced Monday in Superior Court. His probation will also include counseling.

Jackson acknowledged in court documents that he entered a bus lot wearing a Metrobus operator’s uniform in July, drove a bus off the lot, then picked up and dropped off passengers before crashing into a tree and causing $15,000 damage to the bus.

Jackson did not work for Metro nor did he possess a valid commercial driver’s license.
