RICHMOND, Texas (CBS Houston) – A Fort Bend Independent School District bus driver has been put on administrative leave after allegedly choking, punching, and dragging a 12-year-old female student on the bus.

The female bus driver was informed Tuesday by the district of the decision to place her on administrative leave. KHOU reports that district officials confirmed that an altercation had taken place between the driver and the student.

The incident happened recently when the driver was taking students home from Bowie Middle School. The student told KHOU that an argument started between her and the bus driver over what the student described as a misunderstanding, saying that the bus driver thought the girl said the ‘b word’ when it was actually a friend of hers who said it. Soon thereafter, the bus driver attacked the 12-year-old girl, punching, choking, and dragging her around, the girl explained.

The student, who district officials have said suffered minor injuries in the altercation, has made two trips to the hospital as she has complained of headaches, according to the student’s mother.

“I can’t believe that someone else would put their hands on my daughter and they haven’t even arrested this woman,” the student’s mother told KHOU.

Fort Bend police told CBS Houston that the case is not being handled by them but that the school district is overseeing the investigation. Messages left by CBS Houston for Fort Bend ISD were not immediately returned.
