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 bus’ 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 bus’ 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.
