A Clarksville woman is facing assault charges after causing chaos aboard a school bus.

School administrators say the woman cursed at students and attempted to drag a boy off the bus.

Last month, a 6-year-old girl got into a fight with a little boy at near this stop sign. The girl ran home with a bloody lip and returned with an adult. A woman identified as Kela Hand got on the bus yelling and grabbed a child she thought was responsible. Administrators say she grabbed the wrong child. The incident frightened students.

Hand was charged with assault and has been banned from the bus stop and school events. The district says unauthorized adults are not allowed on school buses. The bus driver was disciplined, for not stopping her from getting on the bus, and has been reassigned to a job driving a nutrition truck.
