BALLWIN, Mo. — The St. Louis man arrested in September after a Parkway school bus captured video of a car swerving past it with the stop arms out is scheduled to appear in Ballwin Municipal Court later this month to face charges.
Police say 52-year-old Matthew McCloskey, a registered sex offender, was driving the car seen in the video.
Court records also indicate that about a week before the Ballwin incident, McCloskey was sentenced to five years of probation for failing to register as a sex offender for a 1988 conviction of attempted rape. He is on Missouri's sex offender registry with a Bel-Ridge address and is listed as a lifetime offender.
McCloskey is charged with four offenses in connection with the school bus incident, including passing a stopped school bus, driving with a suspended license, failing to register his car, and leaving the scene of an accident. Municipal court records indicate that he is due in the Ballwin court the evening of November 27.
