The Hall County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a bus disturbance Tuesday afternoon that led to one student receiving minor injuries.
The incident occurred around 4:30 p.m. near the intersection of U.S. 129 South and Barrett Road, in South Hall. The bus driver, Sharon Hamilton, had to stop the bus when three Johnson High School students began an altercation. A sheriff’s deputy noticed the stopped bus, and offered assistance. The situation was then brought under control.
The injured student was treated by emergency personnel at the scene.
Hall Schools’ Director of Community Relations Gordon Higgins said the general code of discipline with the school was both out-of-school and in-school suspensions. He added that bus-riding privileges will be revoked for a period of time, as well.
Around 40 other students were present. They were placed on another bus brought to the scene to continue the route.
