CHESTER, S.C. (WBTV) - A woman was arrested Friday after deputies with the Chester County Sheriff’s Office say she boarded a school bus and attacked middle school children.

According to incident reports, a school bus was stopped at the Pinckney Street bus stop after school. When the driver opened the service door, a group of girls reportedly started fighting.

A woman, identified as Carnisha Kelley, and another girl then ran onto the bus, the driver reported. Kelley began hitting multiple students, according to the incident report.
