School bus brawl under investigation

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) - A fight on a school bus last week between high school students and adult women has a parent of one of the students demanding answers from school officials while school officials say those responsible will be punished.

According to a story from Little Rock television station KARK, a camera captured the fight between J.A. Fair High School students and the women. Whitney Smith told KARK that she was on a bus Friday when it stopped near the Kings Crossing Apartments in Little Rock.

The women had been waiting at the bus stop and then got on the bus, Smith said.

Little Rock police said that one of the adults who got on the bus was the mother of one of the students and is listed as a suspect in the fight. Police also believe the woman was the person who hit the students.

School officials would not comment, saying an investigation into the incident was ongoing. However, officials said the students would be punished according to the school's student handbook.

Also, police are working with the victims to file warrants and to file charges against the adults involved in the fight.
