Bus Driver Caught On Camera Jerking 6-Year-Old To Floor

KIROTV.COM - A mother said she is outraged after seeing surveillance video showing her 6-year-old daughter getting jerked to the floor of her school bus by a Snohomish School District bus driver. School officials first told KIRO 7 news partner The Daily Herald in Everett about the incident that occurred on Jan. 20.

School bus surveillance video shows that the 63-year-old bus driver had lost his patience with students behind him. When a kindergarten student stands up and faces the back of the moving bus, the driver grabs her over his shoulder, grabs her by her backpack and roughly yanks her to the ground. "That's what's going to happen if I hit the brakes. Now go in that seat and sit down!" the driver is heard saying on the video.

The Cathcart Elementary student in the video is Kynzie Reavely. Her mother, Ashley Reavely, said she might have never have known about the incident, but a student reported it to the school, and the school called Reavely. "They said a little girl on her bus had been pulled down by the bus driver. They didn't tell me it was Kynzie, and they said Kynzie might be traumatized by it," said Reavely.

Reavely said she found out from her daughter that she was the student who was pulled down."I said, ‘Well I heard the bus driver put his hands on a little girl on your bus,' and she said, ‘No mommy, he put his hands on me,'" said Reavely.

When the school showed Reavely the video, Reavely said she wanted to file assault charges."There should be more of a law when it comes to assault, especially on a little kid," said Reavely. "I'm not going to ride the bus anymore," said Kynzie. The Daily Herald reported that the driver no longer works in the district, but the district didn't say if he was fired or resigned.

    Man accused of assault after putting wife with dementia on leash

    A Maryland man is facing a simple assault charge after using a dog leash to lead his wife around a Pennsylvania fair because she has late-stage dementia.    West Manchester police say Walter Wolford yanked the 8-inch long red nylon leash, causing his wife's head to jerk back and leave red marks around her throat. But the 66-year-old Hagerstown man says he only gently tugged on the leash, which he uses to keep his wife from getting lost.
