JEROME, ID (WCMH) — An Idaho bus driver landed herself in hot water on Thursday after a cellphone video showed her dumping a bottle of water on a student.
Mary Black, the bus driver in question, can be seen in the video taking a bottle of water and pouring it on eighth grader Miguel Martinez.
Martinez said Black was retaliating against him after he accidentally dropped the bottle. He tried to explain it was an accident, and that he didn’t mean to pour the water on other passengers.
Black was fired from Northside Bus Company after the incident, despite staffing shortages. The Jerome school district superintendent is aware of the video as well.
Eduardo Alvarez Tapia, the student who filmed the incident, said that he hopes the video can show others the type of mistreatment people experience simply because of their skin color and heritage.
“We told that to our parents over six years, but they never believed it because we had no evidence,” Tapia said.
