Posted on November 19, 2013

PORTSMOUTH, Va. — Two school bus drivers were arrested and charged after a fight at their bus depot here last week, police said.

The women, who were preparing for their afternoon runs, were allegedly involved in a verbal altercation that turned physical, at which point they were separated.

Portsmouth police said that one of the women then went to her personal vehicle and retrieved a stun gun, which she allegedly hit the other woman with several times before being restrained by others.

Responding officers arrested 34-year-old Shannon Carter-Brooks, who was charged with assault and battery and possession of a stun gun on school property, and 36-year-old Vonda Braswell, who was charged with assault and battery and released on a criminal summons.

No children were present in the area during the incident.

    Sad, but, bus drivers are like you and I; if pushed long and hard enough we will push back. Everyone is under stress these days and you don't know their boiling point. Thats why it's important to be kind and patient to everyone
