Mother arrested for yelling profanities at kids' bus driver

Posted on November 5, 2014

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — Tamara Moore was arrested after a school bus security camera recorded her profanity-laced verbal attack on her children’s bus driver for missing their stop, Channel 2 Action News reports.

Moore was angry because she said the bus driver made her children late for school by missing their stop, according to the news outlet. However, police told Channel 2 Action News the driver quickly realized her mistake and arrived to pick up the kids soon afterward.

Police added that Moore swore at the driver, threatened her and commented on her weight. The driver told Moore she was being recorded by the bus’ surveillance video system, and police told the news outlet Moore then taunted the camera, giving her name and address in case police wanted to find her. When they did, they arrested Moore and charged her with disorderly conduct and disrupting the operation of a public school.
