— The Vance County Sheriff's Office is considering criminal charges against a high school student who allegedly hit his school bus driver.

Sheriff Peter White said David Ayscue, 53, of Faulkner Town Road was pulling out of the school driveway when a boy hit him in the back.

Ayscue said he turned around and was hit a second time, in the head.

Norman Shearin, superintendent of Vance County Schools, said the student would be suspended and that the district would press charges against him.

The name of the suspect was not released.
