A bus attendant in Polk County, Florida was captured on video threatening and physically abusing a special needs student.
Police officials released recent footage that shows Brenda Nelson, 65, striking a child with her hand before walking to the back of the bus to assist another rider.
Before long, Nelson returns to the seat of the special needs student, where she proceeds to aggressively shake the child's head after she fails to stop screaming.
The furious attendant can be heard threatening her: 'I'm gonna slap that tongue out of your mouth when I get up there.'
Before walking away again, Nelson is shown quickly slapping the girl once more.
During questioning, Nelson alleged the student had been acting out and 'beating on the window, trying to leave her seat,' according to WKRN, however, footage captured from inside the bus shows otherwise.
