Video After The Jump
29-year old bus driver Patrice Sanders is in a lot of trouble after she arranged for two teens to fight in front of her home.
On Thursday of this week Sanders heard two girls, ages 13 and 16, arguing on her bus in Lakeland, Florida.
She told them, "This is going to be handled today and they just need to fight." The 13-year old didn't want to fight, but that didn't pevent Sanders from skipping the rest of the bus stops, driving 20 miles to her house. She ordered all 34 students off the bus to watch the fight.
Authorities say she offered the girls Vaseline so their faces wouldn't get scratched.
At least one student filmed the fight while Sanders stood by and watched until the girls were exhausted. After getting all of the students back on the bus, the two girls started to fight again. Sanders stopped the bus and let them continue to scrap, telling the students, "What happens on the bus, stays on the bus."
The 13-year old's mother reported the incident to police and took her daughter to the hospital to be examined. She did not have any serious injuries.
Sanders was arrested and charged with child abuse, neglect, false imprisonment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
