A local school bus driver has recently been accused of assaulting a student who was riding on his bus.
James Neihof, director of student accounting and support services, said on April 4 a driver carrying high school students stopped the bus in response to a disturbance among the students.
Neihof said the driver, whose name has not been released, considered one of the students to be in physical danger. He then proceeded to detain the other student involved in the disturbance.
"The bus driver took action in the interest of student's safety," Neihof said.
