Waterloo Man Pleads Guilty In Attack On Bus Driver

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A 20-year-old Waterloo man has pleaded guilty in the attack of a school bus driver who had scolded the man’s sister.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says Davontay Robertson made the plea Monday after reaching a deal with prosecutors for a reduced charge. Court records say he’s also known as Dashawn Robertson.

Robertson says he and his mother got in a car and followed the bus after his sister came home crying because of dispute with the bus driver after school on Sept. 12. Robertson says he and the driver argued when Robertson entered the bus. Robertson says he felt threatened, so he hit the driver. Court records say the driver was punched in the head several times.

Robertson’s sentencing hasn’t been scheduled.
