A boy and his mother told Braselton police that he was hit several times on a school bus, after another boy taunted him with a racial slur, according to an incident report.
The mother and her juvenile son met an officer on Allee Way to discuss a fight on a school bus. The son said another student on the bus kept calling him a “n****er” and the son told the other boy to stop.
The other boy then stood up and punched the son three or four times in the face, head and eye, according to an incident report. The son said the bus driver stopped the fight, asked if everyone was OK and returned to the front of the bus.
An officer said he didn’t see any bruises on the son, but his mother was going to take him to a doctor. The incident was captured on video on the bus.
