ELGIN, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a 36-year-old man walked onto a South Carolina school bus and smacked a student who had bothered his girlfriend's daughter.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said in a news release that Karl Williams was charged with disturbing schools and interfering with the operation of a school bus.

Matthews says when the school bus from Lugoff-Elgin High School dropped off his girlfriend's daughter Tuesday, Williams walked onto the bus and slapped a 16-year-old boy in the head. He then left the bus.

The incident was captured by a camera on the school bus.

The sheriff says Williams was arrested the next day. He was released on $2,400 bond and it wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
