Father arrested after boarding bus, making threats

Posted on October 5, 2010

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. — Police have arrested a man who boarded a school bus and threatened a 7-year-old boy last week, WCSC reports.

Timothy James Capazzi has been charged with assault and battery in the third degree. According to police, Capazzi entered a school bus while it was at a bus stop and made verbal threats directed at a young boy who, Capazzi claims, assaulted his son on the bus the previous day.

The bus driver put out a distress call to the transportation department, summoning the police.

This incident is similar to one that occured in Florida last month in which James Jones boarded his daughter's school bus to confront children who were allegedly bullying her. To read SBF's coverage of that story, click here.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the same thing that child was doing to his son? That's more like David and Goliath. As a Parent he should be highly ashamed of himself.
