13-yr-old attacks school bus driver, then state trooper after fight on bus


An investigation is underway to determine if any charges will be brought against a South Carolina middle school student, who attacked his bus driver and a state trooper after a fight with another student.

Richland County deputies told WYFF that the 13-year-old boy eventually had to be restrained by deputes, after a fight with another student on the bus led to more mayhem in Elgin, on Tuesday afternoon.

When the bus driver tried to break up the fight, the boy reportedly started attacking the driver too.

An off-duty SC Highway Patrol trooper was driving in the area when he noticed the fight going on. He stopped to help the driver, and that’s when the boy bit him in the arm—breaking the skin. The trooper had to be treated for the injury, officials said.

Local media reports say the boy was released into his parent’s custody.  Lt. Curtis Wilson of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department said it’s too soon to say whether the boy will be charged at this time.
