Kentucky Student Uses Pepper Spray On Board School Bus

Jefferson County Public Schools in Kentucky is once again in the news for its school busing following an incident in which a student pepper-sprayed another student after two adults boarded the middle school route for an unknown reason, reported WLKY News.

The incident occurred on Wednesday morning, when two adults got onto the bus at one of the stops. At least one adult was running down the aisle of the bus. The article did not state why the adults boarded the school bus or if they were cited for doing so.

Authorities initially thought one of the adults was pepper-sprayed during the incident. However, after reviewing video footage retrieved from the bus, the victim was confirmed to be a student rider.

Officials said EMS was called to the scene and treated the students.

It is unclear if both events are related. More details are expected to be released as to why the adults were on the bus in the first place.

School district police said it continues to investigate the situation as details remain unclear, but charges are possible.
