School bus attendant Hattie Yvonne Branch couldn’t wait “until 3 o’clock” to handle what she thought was a bully situation. The 70-year-old yanked and bit a 14-year-old boy she claimed had been harassing her on the bus.
Florida prosecutors just released the surveillance video of the incident that occurred on June 2nd of this year. The 14-year-old boy is seen engaging in horseplay and jokingly throwing a 5-year-old over a bus seat while the bus was parked and waiting for other students. The younger boy’s leg swung around and accidentally hit the 4’7″ Branch, who happened to be walking by. After suffering daily taunts from the older boy Branch flipped.
Branch was arrested July 8 on child abuse charges and was released the next day from jail on $10,000 bail. Branch has been charged with one count of child abuse but no trial date has been set yet.
