Student punches school bus driver in the head
A student punched a Willow Run school bus driver in the head Thursday after the bus driver broke up an earlier fight between students, Washtenaw County sheriff’s deputies said.
The 37-year-old bus driver told deputies he broke up a fight between two students on a bus about 2:30 p.m. Thursday.
A short time later, one of the students tried to get back on the bus at the Willow Run Community Schools campus in Ypsilanti Township, 235 Spencer Lane, but the driver refused to let him on. The student then punched the driver in the head, sheriff’s deputies said in a media summary.
The student was escorted from the bus, and school officials called police. The driver was not injured, deputies said.
The case will be referred to the Prosecutor’s Office for review.
