Just down the coast from here near Brunswick, a Georgia mother was arrested after she went into a bus full of elementary school students and started spraying pepper spray.

30-year-old Shaquayle Cuyler was dropping her children off at the bus stop when she got into an argument with the bus driver, boarded the bus, took out a can of pepper-spray as the argument escalated.

WSB-TV mentioned that there were 24 total students seated on the bus when Cuyler sprayed the dangerous substance throughout the air. Police were called to the scene and Glynn County emergency medical services came to help treat the injured children. Once all of the students were treated, they were driven to school on a different bus.

The bus driver and bus monitor were most effected by the pepper-spray and had to be transported to a local hospital for further evaluation following the argument. As the investigation continues, Cuyler resides in jail and faces charges encompassing first degree cruelty to children, reckless conduct, disruption of a public bus, and multiple counts of battery. Whether or not the woman's children had already boarded the bus at the time of the attack has yet to be released.
