PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — A 23-year-old woman has been arrested for boarding a school bus and attacking a 72-year-old bus driver, WPBF reports.

Police said in an arrest report that Precious Jackson boarded the bus, confronted the driver, demanded to know the bus driver's name, refused to get off the bus, and then struck him with both open hands and closed fists. Her mother, Kaneeshia Jackson, told the news outlet that her daughter got on the bus to talk to the driver about her 10-year-old brother, who was being bullied, because the bus driver had refused to let him sit with his older brother, saying there were assigned seats. She said that the bus driver “got irate.”

However, witnesses told WPBF that Precious Jackson was the aggressor, trying to take the keys from the ignition and throwing a lotion bottle at the driver. She eventually was pulled off the bus by a mother of a student. Police told the news outlet she continued threatening the other mothers after she was removed from the bus.

She was arrested on charges of battery on a person over 65, battery on a school district employee and trespassing, according to the news outlet.
