LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - WAVE 3 finally has the explosive video of a woman who ripped a school bus driver of the bus and assaulted in front of bus full of children. Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) just wrapped up its investigation and released this video, which is very emotional.
There are shrieks of a child yelling "mommy," then the door opens. That's when Chesica White and her 12-year-old daughter get on the bus. There appears to be an argument or altercation, then according to her arrest warrant, White drags the bus driver out by her feet. A few minutes later one of the children on the bus yells, a child's leg is "busted." We later learned from a JCPS spokesperson that a small child was injured in the altercation.
White faced numerous charges, but only pleaded guilty to third degree assault for attacking bus driver Johnetta Anderson, who suffered a torn A-C-L on her right knee. White is scheduled to be sentenced on September 1.
Just after the incident White spoke with WAVE 3 saying she was standing up for her 7-year-old son who was being bullied.
"She grabbed my daughter in the chest and she drew her hand back like she was ready to hit my daughter so I snatched my daughter back then she kicked her leg out like she was getting ready to check me in my chest," said White. "I did an actual reflex and I grabbed her foot. I caught it and I pulled, and when I pulled, she grabbed my son and little girl and dragged them two down with her. Then after that I didn't strike her. I didn't do nothing to her."
We found that White has been in trouble with the law before. Records show she has been arrested for assault against a boyfriend in the past. White was also recently arrested for criminal trespassing in the third degree and loitering.
