Alabama mom jailed after boarding school bus and fighting an 11-year-old she suspected of bullying her child

An Alabama woman was arrested after allegedly fighting an 11-year-old she suspected of bullying her child.


Nannatt Waldrop, 37, is accused of boarding a yellow bus in the town of Center Point at 7:18 a.m. Tuesday morning, September 14, and getting in a fight with the 11-year-old she believed was picking on her child, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.


A video of the incident went viral and brought it to the attention of authorities, who arrested Waldrop. It’s unknown if the child suffered any injuries.


The Superintendent of Jefferson County Schools, Dr. Walter Gonsoulin, condemned the incident. He said it was “unacceptable” and added that “it will not be tolerated,” according to NBC 15.


Dr. Walter Gonsoulin: “While this is now a law enforcement matter, let me just say what I saw on that video deeply disturbs me.


“At no point is any type of violence acceptable, especially violence against students.”


Waldrop was taken into custody by deputies but was released on a $10,500 bail later the same day having faced charges of third-degree assault, trespassing on a school bus and disorderly conduct.


Gonsoulin added that adults who are not school employees are not allowed on the buses and administrators are reviewing the situation.
