Jerome McNabb, 72, of Pine Grove, was arrested Friday evening after a video on social media showed a school bus driver punching and even kicking a child on April 29, 2022 in St. Helena Parish.
It appears the incident caught on video took place after school let out on Friday afternoon.
The video was brought to the attention of St. Helena Parish Schools Superintendent Kelli Joseph, who spoke with St. Helena Parish Sheriff Nat Williams.
“It’s something we will not tolerate. The superintendent called us and showed us the video. He was arrested immediately,” said Sheriff Williams.
Jerome is charged with one count of simple battery on a juvenile but the investigation continues and additional charges could be pending.
