Charges against Lansing Party Bus owner dropped
Christopher Staggs, owner of LansingParty.com, was charged on four counts of motor bus transportation violations on Nov. 2, 2017, according Clinton County district court records.
Those charges have been dismissed by Clinton County against Staggs.
Staggs said he should not have been charged in the first place.
“The charges were not even legal charges,” Staggs said. “I am a little bit disappointed that the media and original public, that between everyone, no one researched that whatsoever and they simply took these agencies' word for the charges.”
LansingParty.com had been operating without a license for over a year. The vehicles were unlicensed since Sept. 14, 2016, according to Michigan Department of Transportation. The buses were impounded and towed by the Clinton Country Sheriff Office on Oct. 14, 2017.
Students aboard the bus were at Andy T’s Farm when the vehicles were taken away. This left 52 students without a mode of transportation, according to a previous State News article.
Nothing was filed of this account with the courts and the four counts against Staggs were dropped.
