Bus Driver Cleared of Wrongdoing
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) No charges will be brought against a bus driver involved in an altercation with a student.
A Mobile County Sheriff's Office spokesperson said investigators spoke to witnesses and reviewed video from the camera inside the bus. The official said nothing on the video supports the student's claims.
Haley Stapleton said she was talking on her cellphone with her mother when she claims the driver demanded she hand over the phone. When Haley refused, she said, the driver used her forearm to pin the girl against the window.
The official said the video shows an argument, but nothing physical.
No one answered the door at Stapleton's home Wednesday.
