Belle Chasse, La. - A woman was arrested Saturday after she allegedly threatened a student on a school bus.

Sayra Smith, 34, of Belle Chasse, faces charges of trespassing and disturbing the peace. She turned herself in Saturday at the Belle Chasse Lockup and was released on a $1,500 bond  pending a court date.

According to the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's office, on Friday just after 9:30 a.m. deputies were contacted by the Plaquemines Parish School Board regarding an incident that occurred earlier that morning in which a parent boarded a school bus without permission, threatened a sixth-grade student and shouted profanities at the bus driver.

The bus driver had to repeatedly ask Smith to exit the bus, before she eventually complied, the Sheriff's Office said.

Investigating deputies learned that Smith's daughter and the sixth-grade student were involved in an incident on the bus the day before. Because that incident is under an internal review by the School Board, the PPSO was unable to comment further.
