BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ Police in Connecticut say a woman annoyed by students throwing trash from a school bus climbed aboard at one of the stops and became involved in a fight that sent one student to the hospital.

Bridgeport police said 29-year-old Daisha Womack told officers she was driving behind the bus when her car was hit by things thrown out the bus windows. She got on the bus at one of the stops and allegedly confronted a student, when others jumped her.

Police said one student was taken to Saint Vincent’s Medical Center after complaining of head pain from the Thursday afternoon scuffle. They said Friday that Womack was charged with criminal trespass, breach of peace, third-degree assault, and risk of injury to a minor. Her bond was set at $10,000.
