JASPER, Fla. (WCTV) –The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office says five students face misdemeanor battery charges after a fight on a school bus.

Video of the November 21 attack shows the students punching at a teen sitting in a bus seat.

That video was posted on Twitter Thursday, with a message implying that the fight started because the victim was wearing a President Trump hat. It’s been circulating widely on social media, generating an angry response by many commenters. The social media outcry drew a response from the sheriff’s office and the Hamilton County school superintendent Friday.

GRAPHIC: Some viewers may find this video disturbing.

For immediate release.
