Girl involved in fight on school bus calls mom who allegedly tries to cut off bus, smash window with hammer

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Glendale woman is facing charges after police say she tried to stop a school bus where her daughter was engaged in a fight.

Magan Gumbus of Glendale faces charges of Disorderly Conduct following the April incident.

A girl told police that she was riding home on the school bus when another student "got in her face" about her phone which had been dropped and cracked earlier in the month. The two allegedly got into a physical altercation on the bus.

As the bus was traveling its route, a car being driven by Gumbus tried to cut the bus off in an attempt to get on the bus. 

Gumbus then allegedly got out of her car and hit the bus with a hammer.

The bus driver moved around Gumbus' vehicle and kept driving. Again, Gumbus got out of her vehicle and smashed a bus window with the bus. One of the girls involved in the fight then got off the bus.

The bus driver told police that when the fight broke out, one of the girls called her mother, Gumbus, who attempted to stop the bus in an effort to get on. The bus driver also said that the majority of the kids on the bus were screaming to be let off because they were scared.

Gumbus told police that her goal was to get her daughter off the bus and not to attack or beat up any kids.
