Woman Who Slammed Boy On School Bus Won’t Be Charged

GALESBURG, Mich. (November 2, 2012)--A female transportation employee will not be charged after she was caught on video slamming a 7-year-old boy into a school bus window in southwestern Michigan, Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Fink said.

Fink said the woman was acting in self-defense.

A company hired to handle student transportation and the district said the employee was fired after the Oct. 10 incident.

Fink said a review found witnesses reported that the child threatened the employee and put a coat over her head.

He said the child had a history of behavioral issues on the bus that officials were trying to handle.

The video was taken by a student and posted online.

Police investigated the incident as well the ex-employee's claim that the boy had threatened her.
