Canandaigua, N.Y. – A bus driver faces charges for allegedly putting hands on a student to quiet them down.
Ontario County Sheriff’s deputies say 47-year-old Susan Mantz, a bus driver for the Marcus Whitman School District, was parked outside of the high school on June 8 when one of the students on the bus became disruptive. To keep him quiet, Mantz allegedly put her hand over the student’s mouth.
The student wasn’t injured, but reported the incident to his mother when he got home. Mantz was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after the student’s mother complained.
She was issued a ticket to appear in court at a later date.
