A research was released after a video shows a father yelling and threatening children on a school bus after he claims one of the other students hit his son.
According to Wave 3 News, the incident took place in Louisville, KY, and occurred on Friday when the students were on the bus on their way home from Carter Elementary School. As he made a stop, the video showed a man yelling at children on the bus and threatening to “turn the whole bus over” if they touched his daughter again. A girl, believed to be the man’s daughter, was also present with him at the time. There was also another man present as he pulled the father away from the children when some of them started screaming and crying at that moment.
The school principal, Jamie Wyman, sent an email to the parents after the incident informing them of what happened. He stated that the bus driver was instructed to take the students back to school without making additional stops, and once at the school, the students waited until LMPD (Louisville Metropolitan Police Department) security arrived and JCPS (Jefferson County Public School).
