Fight Between School Bus Driver and Teen Leads to Charges Against Both

A school bus driver and a student are both in some hot water…after fighting with each other on the bus. A woman told police her 13-year-old daughter came home from school one day and told her she’d been assaulted by her bus driver. The substitute driver was taking kids home from a local high school. The driver says he told the girl to sit down while the bus was moving, and that sparked an argument between the two.

The teen said the driver threatened to assault her. He grabbed a stick, walked to the back of the bus and slapped the girl in the face. Then he continued to drop off kids. When he got to the intersection of West Algonquin Trail and Iroquois, the girl went to get off the bus…but not before she allegedly stabbed the driver with a pencil.

After a police investigation, the driver — 62-year-old Roy Gipson of Shreveport — and the 13-year-old were each cited for simple battery.
