A man has been jailed after allegedly stealing a school bus on the west side of Michigan and trying to drive it to Detroit so he could start a rap group.

Josiah Daniel Curtis was arrested Thanksgiving Day after being pulled over on I-94 near Zeeb Road.

The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office said Curtis was behind the wheel of a school bus that was swerving and speeding.

He didn’t have a license or paperwork proving he had permission to drive the bus.

WOOD-TV reported Curtis stole the Kent County bus from a yard in Wyoming. He allegedly jumped the bus yard fence, found keys for several buses and damaged several of them trying to drive them out. He eventually freed one and then started driving towards Detroit.

He told police he was headed that way to try to meet a rapper to start his career.

He's being held in the Washtenaw County Jail until his next hearing on Dec. 4.
