Video shows mom attacking school bus driver, police say

CINCINNATI -- New surveillance video shows a reported attack on a school bus driver.

Police said a mother, Keisha Shannon, boarded the bus and grabbed the driver last month.

In the video, the bus stops and several children board, followed by an adult woman. The woman begins shouting, asking the driver if she saw her.

As the woman continues shouting, she seems to say "If I punch you in the f---ing face, you're going to be sorry you did" before telling a nearby child to "get on the bus."

"I don't know who the f--- you think you is," the woman continues at the driver, and then they begin to fight. Several children begin crying "mommy."

As the women grapple with each other, another adult boards the bus and tries to separate them. During this, one girl can be seen turning away and covering her eyes with her hands and hair. She then helps another, smaller girl away toward the back of the bus and hugs her as the younger girl cries.

The bus driver was hospitalized after the incident.

Shannon has been charged with assault.
