WATCH: Georgia School Bus Driver Fired and Arrested After Video Shows Him Shoving Two Black Students

Georgia school bus driver has been fired and arrested after a viral video showed him shoving two Black students.

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office arrested the driver, James O’Neil, on Friday, charging him with two counts of battery after a cellphone video showed him getting physical with a 6-year-old and a 10-year-old on the school bus. O’Neil is white, and the children’s parents have deemed the incident racially motivated.

“My son is terrified, he was scared, he called for his older sister as you could hear he was crying…he was horrified…you’re supposed to be protecting him,” the children’s mother Nequania Carter told local outlet FOX 5.

Carter said the confrontation started on Sept. 9, when O’Neil demanded the 6-year-old sit at the back of the bus. The boy didn’t comply, which resulted in O’Neil getting physical.

“I don’t know why he told them to sit in the back of the bus because the high schoolers sit back there and normally the primaries sit right behind the bus driver,” Carter explained.

The boy’s 10-year-old sister could be seen on video trying to intervene, which resulted in her getting pushed as well.

“Shut your mouth,” O’Neil can be heard saying to the 10-year-old as he pushes the little boy. After he shoves the young girl, he then says, “What a pain in the neck you guys are. Get back there.”
