Caught on Tape: School Bus Driver Yanks Six-Year-Old

A school bus driver in Snohomish, Wash., is no longer on the job after yanking a six-year-old girl to the floor by her backpack.

Surveillance video caught the incident on tape.

The girl, seated in the front seat across the aisle from the bus driver, stands up to talk to students seated behind her.

That's when the driver turns around to grab the child, forcefully bringing her to the ground.

"That's what's going to happen if I hit the brakes," he yells.

The school district would not answer any questions, but did release a statement saying the bus driver was immediately placed on leave and subsequently resigned.

The Snohomish County Prosecutors Office is currently reviewing the case to determine if it will file assault charges against the driver.
