Driver fired, student charged after fight on school bus

SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A Crestwood High School student is facing an assault charge and a bus driver is out of a job after a scuffle on a school bus last month.

Jasmine Robinson, 17, was charged with simple assault after the early morning incident in the bus unloading zone at Crestwood High School March 1.

After a Sumter School District investigation, the driver, 61-year-old Delores Rainwater, was fired, a spokesperson for the district said.

The incident, according to a sheriff's department incident report, happened on bus #908 around 8:15 a.m.

Robinson told investigators that when she got on the bus she noticed a jacket on the seat and moved it to the seat next to her. As she did so, Rainwater "started in on her for moving her stuff," the report stated.

Rainwater then told Robinson not to look at her and said, "See that[s] why you don't have any friends", and "If you was my child I would bust your butt," according to the report.

Robinson replied, "If you do that I'll slap you," the report stated.

Two students were able to calm Robinson down and move her to the back of the bus, according to the report.

According to Robinson, Rainwater continued looking at her and smiling at her in the mirror during the ride to the school.

When the bus reached Crestwood High School, Robinson said another student got in between the driver and herself because Rainwater had gotten out of her seat. Robinson said that's when she punched Rainwater and the fight started, the report stated.

Rainwater suffered cuts to her face. She was taken to an area hospital.

Robinson was transported to Sumter-Lee Detention Center and charged.
