GILMORE, AR (KAIT/WREG) - A Crittenden County woman faces second-degree battery and terroristic threatening charges after she reportedly threatened to shoot a school bus driver before a fight happened earlier this week.

According to CNN content partner WREG, Stacey Delaney of Gilmore, who is married to Gilmore mayor Bruce Delaney, was arrested Monday by Crittenden County deputies after an incident.

The incident happened after a girl, who typically does not ride the Marion school bus, but was allowed to ride the bus to Gilmore. The bus driver did not know about the situation and the girl, who is related to Delaney, had to stay at the school, WREG reported.

Authorities say Delaney and Michael Stoutmiles were at a nearby bus stop waiting for the girl to get home.

When the girl did not arrive home, Delaney reportedly got on the bus, threatened to get a gun, and shoot the driver, WREG reported.

The bus driver received a head injury after the fight started, authorities said.

Delaney was arrested on suspicion of second-degree battery and terroristic threatening, while Stoutmiles was arrested on suspicion of second-degree battery. Police also say that a 15-year-old was also arrested in connection with the case.
