Charlotte mothers charged with attacking school bus driver.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Two Charlotte women are charged with assault and interfering with a school bus after police said they punched a school bus driver in the face and upper body.

Tiara Henderson, 28, and her sister, Josephine Henderson, 35, were charged after the incident on Sept. 11. They were arrested Friday.

Police said they boarded a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bus when it stopped in the morning at Amity Place and Farmingdale Drive in east Charlotte and assaulted the driver, a 54-year-old woman.

Tiara Henderson told WSOC on Monday that her 5-year-old son and her nephew were in tears, afraid to get on the bus, because they said the driver was mean and yelled at the children on the bus.
