Protective mum boards school bus and pummels 11-year-old she claims was bullying her son

A mum from Alabama has been arrested after boarding a yellow school bus and getting into a fight with an 11-year-old child who she believed had been bullying her son.

37-year-old Nannatt Waldrop boarded the school bus in the town of Center Point in Jefferson County Alabama at 7:18 on Tuesday morning and proceeded to attack a child..

Waldrop claimed that the child had been targeting her son with bullying, and is now being charged with third degree assault, disorderly conduct, and trespassing on a school bus, authorities confirmed.

Waldrop could have violated the law as only adults working at the school can board the bus.

Administrators at the Jefferson County school are currently assessing the incident and deciding how to proceed.

Waldrop was taken into custody and later released with a bond of $10,500.

Authorities released a statement calling Waldrop’s behaviour “disturbing”, and saying that “it will not be tolerated”.

In the statement, the superintendent of Jefferson County Dr. Walter Gonsoulin spoke of the incident as “unacceptable”, adding that:

“While this is now a law enforcement matter, let me just say what I saw on that video deeply disturbs me.

“At no point is any type of violence acceptable, especially violence against students.”

At present it has not been confirmed if the 11-year-old child suffered any serious injuries in the alleged assault.

It isn’t clear whether Waldrop was aware of the bullying allegations against her child before she attacked him, or if it was a reaction to what she witnessed on the bus.

The internet published a video of Waldrop confronting the bully at the yellow school. This led Jefferson County authorities, who eventually detained Waldrop on multiple charges.
