A South Carolinian teenage girl and her parents are facing charges after assaulting a student on school bus, according to Greenville Police.
A GPD School Resource Officer was dispatched on Friday to deal with an incident that took place on a bus earlier that morning.
After reviewing the footage from the bus security cameras and taking statements, the police determined that 17-year-old Ambrosia Collins escalated a petty verbal argument, eventually calling her mother as the bus made a stop.
When the driver ordered Collins to put her phone away, the girl yelled at her and threw her phone.
As the driver continued on the route, Collins’ mother, Sara Crawford, and stepfather, Jamarial Crawford, pursued the vehicle, appearing at the bus door when the vehicle came to a stop.
Assuming they wanted to pick up their daughter, the driver opened the doors and Ambrosia claimed a student was “talking about her baby,” and she was “going to get her.”
Shortly after, stepfather, mother and daughter moved to the back of the bus as Ambrosia began attacking the student in question. Despite being ordered to get off the bus, the guardians refused, pulling their daughter off the bus and claiming they would “set it up differently next time.”
Ambrosia Collins is charged with third-degree assault and battery. Jamarial and Sara Crawford are charged with disturbing school and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
According to WYF44, Spartanburg School District Three officials released a statement Tuesday saying, “On Dec. 8 around 7:15 a.m., two adults unlawfully entered a Spartanburg School District Three school bus during a normal stop on Burns Road. District Three always puts the safety of our students at the forefront.Therefore, Spartanburg School District Three is working collaboratively with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Department for a complete investigation of the incident. We will make no further comments on the issue as it is under investigation.”
