NBC NATIONAL NEWS — School officials in Houston, Texas are investigating an assault on board a school bus that was caught on camera.
Blake Chilla, 12, said he and the girl seen in a cellphone video exchanged words in the moments before the video was shot.
His mom said he found out when Blake's older sister discovered the video had been posted on Facebook.
"I was shocked and my son loves to ride the bus. And to my knowledge had never had any issues on the bus and I was really surprised. I had no idea there was any issues," Tracy Chilla said.
The school district said it started investigating as soon as it heard about the allegation early Friday morning.
