RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Richmond School Board member has been found guilty of passing a stopped school bus last month outside the Amelia Street School, which serves students with disabilities.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1JTynPr ) reports that a judge found 52-year-old Tichi Pinkney Eppes guilty Tuesday after her hearing in Richmond General District Court.

Eppes says she’ll appeal her conviction on one count of reckless driving.

Officer Christopher Kitt testified he saw Eppes drive around the bus on June 10 as children were exiting the vehicle and issued her a ticket.

Eppes says she waited when she came across the bus that day, which she says appeared to be empty.

Eppes says there were no eyewitnesses to the incident and that she’s working to gather evidence that supports her claim.
