Substitute School Bus Driver Attacked by Angry Mother

A mother in Arizona who is on probation for an assault conviction was caught on camera as she allegedly attacked her daughter’s school bus driver while youngsters were still on the bus.

On the afternoon of April 11, a 64-year-old woman was filling in for an absent bus driver and dropping off children along the regular route. When she pulled over at one of the stops, she reportedly became entangled in an encounter with the angry mother of a girl who rides the bus.

The incident, which was recorded on a camera inside the bus, reportedly started when the mom believed the bus driver said something about her child. She boarded the bus and confronted the driver, and the driver denied the accusation before telling the woman to get out of the vehicle.

The footage showed the woman, who was reportedly yelling the whole time, allegedly slapped and punched the driver in the head and face several times. Other parents can also be seen yelling in the background. It was reported that the alleged attack came to a halt when a man, later identified as the woman’s boyfriend, grabbed her and forced her off the bus.

The authorities were notified, and officers went to the scene. They reported that the bus driver was crying when they arrived, and she said she didn’t know the woman or her child. They noted that there was a red mark on her face, and it was assumed that it came from being hit by the suspect.

On April 17, the woman was arrested for aggravated assault on a school employee. She was released on a $5,000 bond, and she is no longer allowed to go to the bus stop.
