DENVER (AP) - A substitute Jefferson County schools driver faces two counts of child abuse stemming from an altercation on a bus.

The Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/oba5bz7 ) and KMGH-TV (https://tinyurl.com/lnup739 ) report that according to a Lakewood police summons, staff asked a disruptive 12-year-old boy to get off 62-year-old David Blanchard’s bus after school on Friday. The student was later allowed to get back on, but then yelled at Blanchard. The driver pinned the boy to a seat, grabbing him by the throat, according to witnesses. Blanchard then pinned a second student who tried to intervene.

The first student, who may be charged with harassment, suffered scratches. The student who tried to intervene was uninjured.

Blanchard was not jailed and is scheduled to be arraigned March 23.
