An Alabama mother was arrested after allegedly boarding a school bus to fight a student she claimed was bullying her child. The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said that Nannatt Waldrop, 37, "confronted an 11-year-old student whom Waldrop suspected of bullying her child."
They said that the confrontation devolved into a physical altercation between Waldrop and the student. A video of the fight was posted on social media.
Superintendent of Jefferson County Schools Superintendent Dr. Walter Gonsoulin issued a statement saying that the district is cooperating with the investigation.
"We are aware of the video circulating on social media of a fight that occurred on one of our school buses Tuesday morning," he said in a statement. "I want to be very clear: This type of behavior is unacceptable, and it will not be tolerated."
"While this is now a law enforcement matter, let me just say what I saw on that video deeply disturbs me," Gonsoulin continued. "At no point is any type of violence acceptable, especially violence against students. We have been and will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement."
Waldrop was taken into custody and charged with third-degree simple assault, trespassing on a school bus, and disorderly conduct. She was released after posting a $10,500 bond.
