KENTON COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

A Northern Kentucky woman was indicted on Thursday after and assault on a bus in October.

Barbara Dobbs, 36, was indicted by a Kenton County grand jury on two counts of assault in the third degree.

Prosecutors accused Dobbs of walking onto her daughters bus along Locust Pike on Oct. 27, and assaulting the bus driver and bus monitor.

“Anytime something like this happens in front of a bus full of children I think it’s important that the children know there is accountability and the justice system works,” said Kenton Co. Prosecutor Rob Sanders.

The images obtained by FOX19 NOW of the alleged assault show Dobbs on the bus pointing at the bus driver and bus monitor as well. None of the images released show the actual assault.

FOX19 NOW did contact Dobbs for comment, but she declined. She is expected back in court on Dec. 12.

The alleged assault began when Dobbs daughter called her to tell her about the dispute she was having with both school employees.

Sanders claims Dobbs waited at the Locust Pike bus stop and then boarded the bus getting into a verbal altercation with the bus driver and bus monitor.

The police report states that the bus driver suffered an injury under her left eye. The bus monitor was not injured.

Sanders said school employees are protected like police officers when it comes to assault while in commission of their duty.

“It makes any kind of assault, no matter how minor, a felony offense,” he said.

If convicted on both counts Dobbs could face anywhere from one to 10 years in prison.
