Dubuque School Board Member Facing Criminal Charges

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — A Dubuque school board member is facing criminal charges after getting into an argument with a bus driver in a country club parking lot.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports that 50-year-old George Davis spent Saturday night in jail after the incident. He was released after posting $5,000 bond Sunday.

Police say Davis pounded on the hood of a bus and entered the bus to confront the driver because he believed it was parked in his way. Davis was cited on suspicion of two misdemeanor charges.

Davis says he regrets the incident and plans to cooperate fully with investigators.

Davis is an attorney who has been elected to the school board twice. He also serves on the board of Western Dubuque Biodiesel.
