A 16-year-old faces charges after a fight broke out on a Waterloo Durham School bus Wednesday morning.
Police say the bus driver pulled into a police station after a teenager allegedly sprayed pepper spray. According to police, a high school student is pressing charges for serious assault and disorderly conduct.
Police say no one was seriously injured, and the 16-year-old has been released to his guardians.
Waterloo Community School District Spokesperson Tara Thomas says the teenager facing charges does not go to a school in the district but to an “outside placement”. Thomas says the district, Durham and the third unidentified entity is evaluating the situation, but school officials are working on a way to discipline the teenager. According to Thomas, the 16-year-old will not be on the school bus for the immediate future.
