Bus Driver Attacks Student With Broom, Caught On Tape (VIDEO)

A bus driver and a 14-year-old student got into it in a chaotic scene that starts with shouting and ends with the driver apparently attacking the student with a broom -- and the whole thing was caught on tape.

The student, Autumn Bonilla, told FOX59 that she had words with the driver as she disciplined another student, and it escalated from there.

“She told me I had to put my phone away, and I told her I wasn’t putting anything away. Then, we started cussing at each other,” Bonilla said. “I completely 100 percent admit that I started it. I’m not going to sit here and lie to you. I did start it. But that (doesn’t) give a grown woman a reason to put her hands on me at all.”

Bonilla says she suffered a fracture in a bone in her nose during the alleged attack.

The driver, identified as Charlotte McDaniel, has been suspended, and Marion County prosecutors are investigating.
