School bus assault, middle schooler charged

Winchester, TN
Two first-graders were kicked, punched and duct-taped by a classmate on the school bus.

A girl was slapped in the face, leaving marks, and then kicked in the leg, leaving a big bruise.  He then duct-taped her mouth shut.  When her friend told him to stop, he struck her.

These incidents allegedly occurred in the seat behind the bus driver, whom the parents claimed did nothing to stop the attack.

The 7th-grade student has been expelled, and the bus driver is under investigation.
