Cops: T driver lost roll of the dice on bus-shooting story

A T bus driver is due in Chelsea District Court for arraignment this morning on charges she filed a false police report related to the way her bus got shot up in 2007, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. Nancy Parker, 51, of Burlington, originally told police a man boarded her bus and opened fire. Transit Police now say a former lover shot up the bus in a dispute over debts.

Innocent, etc.

    Was the driver simply trying to throw police off the trail? If so, was the driver intimidated or bribed, or was this "stop snitching" practice, or...?

    Or was this an attempt to frame a particular party?

    Or was there no intent to deceive, and the driver was somehow mistaken?

    I'm assuming here that the driver did claim the shooter was male, and that they've determined that claim is incorrect.
