TULSA - A Tulsa school bus driver was suspended Thursday and will likely be brought up on assault charges after an altercation with an elementary principal.
According to Tulsa Public Schools Police Chief Gary Rudick, the driver and Key Elementary principal Doug Howard got into an argument after classes Thursday in front of a bus full of children when the dispute escalated, with the driver ultimately pushing the administrator.
Rudick said the driver will be charged with misdemeanor assault and battery, but was not arrested as of late Thursday night. He has not been identified.
A district spokeswoman says the argument was sparked by the bus driver's refusal to allow two students on his bus because they weren't on the list.
