ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Lee County parent and her stepdaughter are facing charges for a fight on a school bus last week.

Leesburg Police charged Mary Terrell and her 14 year old step daughter with simple battery, disrupting a public school, and criminal trespass for the incident on the bus Wednesday. Police wouldn't let us show you the video because the students are juveniles, but they allowed our reporter to watch the tape that showed students starting a fight on the bus.

The driver continued to make stops as students stood on the seats, pushing and yelling at each other. A middle school student called her mother and when the bus stopped and the mother confronted the driver, her stepdaughter charged through to confront a student.

"The mom went back there to break up the fight but during the altercation of breaking up the fight, some things were said that shouldn't have been said and I think the Mom and the juvenile, the male juvenile, got into an altercation," said Sgt. Jason Anthony, Leesburg Police School Resource Officer.

Several students were pushed to the floor of the bus. One was kicked by the 14 year old expelled student. Police say they've had a difficult time tracking down everyone involved in the fight because the bus never stopped after the incident, but continued on to the high school.
