TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police in Tulsa have arrested a man who they say stole an empty school bus and took it for a joyride.

Police say the Tulsa Public Schools bus was stolen early Monday when the driver went into a gas station and left the bus running. The Tulsa World reports a man told officers he decided to steal the bus after seeing an anti-texting-and-driving sign on the bus that said, “drop it and drive.”

Police say the man told officers that he “dropped what he was doing” and drove off in the bus.
