BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities said a man accused of getting onto a school bus and threatening a 9-year-old was arrested Monday due to a tip from the public.

Crime Stoppers Baton Rouge said Randy Mackey, 47, was taken into custody by the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office after someone gave deputies information about him.

Mackey is charged with unlawful disruption of the operation of a school.

Detectives said Mackey walked onto a school bus on October 22 while it was at a bus stop.

Investigators said he refused to get off the bus even after the driver asked him several times to do so.

They added while on the bus, Mackey allegedly threatened to beat up a 9-year-old passenger.

Officials said Mackey left the bus without hurting anyone.
