Student punched after showing off good grade
Placeholder Image

A father filed a report with the Newton County Sheriff's Office after his daughter was punched in the face by another student on the school bus.

While showing off a good grade she had made on a test that day, a male student who lives in her subdivision slapped the paper out of her hands and punched her in the face.

The punch cut the inside of the daughter's lip and loosened one of her teeth.

However, because the bus driver did not witness the incident, the male student could not be disciplined. The manager of the bus yard would not release any footage to the father from the bus. The father then went to the police to document the incident.
