PETERS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Peters Township School District students accused of throwing bottles at passing cars while riding on a school bus have been disciplined, according to district officials.

Investigators said the Peters Township baseball team was riding on Interstate 79 Friday when a passing car alerted authorities that they were hit with a water bottle thrown by a passenger on the bus.

Officers were waiting for the bus when it returned to the school and they questioned the team.

Shelly Belcher, the communications coordinator for the Peters Township School District, told Channel 11 News that the Pennsylvania State Police conducted an investigation and identified the students who were involved.

“The students have received disciplinary actions from the school, as well as from the baseball team,” Belcher said.

The details of the students’ punishments have not been released.

“Behavior that may compromise the safety of our students or others is taken very seriously by the district – on campus or anywhere our students are representing Peters Township,” Belcher said.

The names of the students involved have not been released. No criminal charges have been filed.
