On Thursday afternoon in Stafford County, Virginia, a teenager was accused of assaulting a school bus driver after having a verbal altercation over the release of one of the students on the bus.

Between 4:30 and 5:00 p.m. a teenage boy approached a school bus in order to pick up one of the student riders. The driver of the bus was a substitute, and he possessed a list from the school instructing him of who he had permission to release each child into the care of. The boy’s name did not appear on the list for the child he was trying to chaperone, and the driver explained that he would have to call the school for permission before he could allow the student to exit the bus.

The boy, who deputies later identified as the brother of the child he was attempting to retrieve, allegedly became angered and entered the bus. It was reported that they began arguing and the teen punched the bus driver in the face leaving an open wound on his forehead. In addition, the bus monitor on board was hit in the face while attempting to guard the students.

Garcia, who has a lengthy record dating back a decade of indecent exposure cases, pled guilty on Tuesday to two felony counts of indecent exposure with prior convictions.
