A Broken Arrow mother will be heading to court, after she is charged in connection with an alleged slapping incident on a Broken Arrow school bus. An assault and battery charge has been filed against 31-year-old Corisa Otto. Investigators say the entire incident earlier this month, was caught on the school busâ€™ videotape.
Broken Arrow Police say Corisa Otto dropped her children off at a school bus stop in Broken Arrow. Investigators say a camera on the bus recorded Otto getting on the bus, approaching another child and slapping a student on the bus.
The News On 6 requested a copy of the busâ€™ videotape, but the attorney prosecuting the case says she's using it as the main piece of evidence and won't release it.
Broken Arrow Police officers say it sounds like a case of a mother confronting her child's bully.
Corisa Otto is scheduled to go to court next month. If convicted, she could face a $750 fine and up to 60 days in jail.
