It told the news outlet that Johnson was trying to manage the release of some students when a “backup” escalated with parents of several students waiting at the stop outside the bus. School district employees called the Dallas Police Department.
Cellphone footage of the incident appeared to show some parents using an SUV to block the intersection before the confrontation became physical, the news outlet said.
Police officers responded and helped dismiss students from the bus while a supervisor helped transport the remaining students on the bus. The students arrived home safely, the district said.
Johnson has been suspended from her bus route by the district. Fox News Digital has reached out to the district.
