Special Ed Student Suspended For Bus Incident

Putnam County school official say a 15-year-old special education student has been suspended from riding the school bus after he allegedly attacked a seven-year-old boy.  The incident happened last week and officials say the bus driver was able to stop the bus and deal with the situation, which reportedly involved the teenager hitting the younger boy in the chest and stomach. A March 21st hearing has been set to determine whether the older child should be allowed back on the bus, and the family of the younger boy reported the incident to police, who advised them on how to go about obtaining a juvenile petition for assault if they choose.
