An investigation has been started after a man was captured on camera yelling and threatening students on a school bus over allegations that his daughter had been struck by one of the pupils.
The incident happened on Friday, August 26, as the pupils from Carter Elementary School in Louisville, Kentucky, were riding the bus home, according to Wave 3 News.
In the viral video, a man can be seen yelling at the children on the bus threatening to “flip this whole bus,” if they were to touch his daughter again. Another man, who appeared to be the driver, was also seen holding the angry father back from the terrified children as some were crying during the confrontation.
The school’s principal, Jamie Wyman sent an email to parents following the incident informing them about what happened. She reassured that the bus driver was directed to take the students back to the school without making any additional stops, and once at the school, the students waited until LMPD (Louisville Metro Police Department) and JCPS (Jefferson County Public School) Security arrived.
It was also gathered that parents were encouraged to talk about the incident with their children, and also to reach out to the school’s counsellor, who was available to speak about the incident.
A JCPS spokesperson shared that a school safety officer was present during afternoon dismissal on Monday, and an officer followed the bus in the morning. The bus stop where the incident occurred was also monitored by a JCPS security guard.
So far, no arrests have been made in connection to the incident.
