Ft. Hayes Student Pleads Guilty To Assaulting Bus Driver

Dec 19, 2018

One of three former Fort Hayes  students has pleaded guilty to assaulting a bus driver last March. 

The Columbus school district placed 53-year old Kioshi Smith on unpaid leave after video of the incident surfaced showing him trying to hit one of the students before another student hits him.  Smith says it all started when he denied a student's request to sit on his bus to get warm, citing district policy. Smith says the student became angry and abusive.
