Bus attendant beats, bites boy on school bus – “He done hit me!”

Bartow, Florida – A recently released video shows a former Polk County bus attendant hitting, pushing, biting and pulling the hair of a 14-year-old on the bus. The bus attendant is facing a child abuse charge. As the school bus sat in the loading zone at Lakeland High School, the 14-year-old student flipped a 5-year-old boy over the seat. When he did so, the boy’s legs hit the bus attendant, and she thinks it was done intentionally. “He done hit me!”  Hattie Yvonne Branch is heard saying on the school bus video. Branch, the bus attendant, is then seen lashing back at the teen. “Stop, Yvonne! He didn’t mean to do that!” pleaded Charlene Wimes, the school bus driver. Wimes tried to stop it, but Branch is seen the video striking the teen and pushing the student into the seats.  Full Article
