WASHINGTON (AP) - Metro Transit Police say they’ve charged a 14-year-old boy from Washington with attacking a Metro bus driver with a stun gun in January.

The teen from Washington was arrested Tuesday and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.

Police say the teen was aboard an E4 bus headed to Fort Totten Station on Jan. 30 when he attacked the bus driver without provocation with a stun gun, striking her on her right arm. The bus operator was later taken to a hospital.

Detectives used video evidence from aboard the bus to help identify the teen, whose name is being withheld because of his age.
