School Bus Beatdown, Levy County Driver Fired
A Levy county school bus driver is without a job after being fired for grabbing a 10 year old student by the throat and kicking him off her bus. Around 6:30 am, Friday January 14th a fight broke out in the back of Lilly Law's school bus parked at Williston elementary. She said she was defending other students. Levy county school board members disagreed and said Law's stellar record can't erase her actions.
"This crosses the line of what's acceptable. I don't think any employee should grab a student by the throat and choke him down and throw him physically off a bus or out of a classroom or anywhere. If you don't draw the line there then you have no lines to draws," said superintendent Bob Hastings.
The student at the center of the fight has a history of trouble. To see a full report, watch the video on the right side of this page.
