[UPDATE] Video Released of Caddo School Bus Driver Charged with Battery on Student
[Update 2:26 p.m.] Video showing Caddo Parish bus driver Gay Miller verbally reprimanding a young boy who was fighting with another student (who incidentally is Miller's own daughter) has been released. The video is low-quality, making it difficult to determine if Miller, who was subsequently charged with simple battery for the incident, was truly hurting the student.
In the video, Miller can be seen reaching over and grabbing the young passenger, asking him twice, "Have you lost your mind?" She continued: "I didn't want you on my bus since the beginning."
