VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Shocking video was sent to the WAVY newsroom Friday afternoon, showing what appears to be a fight on a school bus — but one thing makes the video very strange.
WAVY.com learned the video was shot on a school bus leaving Renaissance Academy Thursday afternoon. Lauren Wicks with Virginia Beach City Public Schools told us the school’s director is investigating the incident. But the strange part is — at the end of the video, everyone involved in the fight shakes hands.
The school system told WAVY.com the school’s director talked with one of the students who was identified in the video, and the student said the whole thing was staged.
Still, 10 On Your Side has a lot of questions about the video:
- What was the bus doing at the time?
- What was the bus driver doing at the time?
- Was the driver in on it?
- Are parents aware that this took place?
- And even if this was staged, why was this allowed to take place on school bus?
WAVY.com will stay on the school system about the investigation and let you know what we find out.
