PLAINVILLE - A local school bus driver was arrested Monday on domestic violence charges.

Tracy McCrory, 46, has been charged with risk of injury to a minor, second-degree reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.

According to the police report, McCrory had an argument in her home with a man - who has not been identified because of the state’s domestic violence laws - and a juvenile - whose name and age have also not been released. During the dispute McCrory threw an iPad in the direction of the man and the minor, causing the case to break in front of them, the police report said.

Police allege McCrory then said she would kill herself by overdosing on prescription sleeping pills in front of the man and the juvenile. She then broke the door on the way out before taking off in a vehicle. 

McCrory was later arrested on Woodford Avenue Extension. She was evaluated at the Hospital of Central Connecticut before being turned back over to police. 

According to the report, police could not immediately get in contact with someone from Dattco, where McCrory is employed as a local school bus driver. 

McCrory, of 17 Plum Tree Road, was held on bond overnight and arraigned Tuesday in Bristol Superior Court, where she was released on a promise to appear. She is due back in court on May 31 to enter a plea.
