PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Panhandle school bus driver has been arrested after a video tape showed the woman hitting a child with the back of her hand.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://on.pnj.com/1qu7cR5 ) reported Wednesday that the woman was charged with child cruelty without great bodily harm.

The child’s mother said she pursued charges against the bus driver after seeing video of the April incident for the first time earlier this month. The 9-year-old child has special needs.

Escambia County Superintendent of Schools Malcolm Thomas says he can’t comment on the incident because it is under ongoing investigation.
