Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A viral bus-stop bullying video is getting students in trouble with the school district.
On Wednesday, the Clark County School District confirmed it cited the alleged bully for battery. In the video, she's seen taking down another girl by her hair.
"I felt queasy to my stomach," said Bobbi Clark who witnessed the attack. While other students stood around watching, Bobbi is seen in the video bending down to help the victim who was injured.
"I was just like are you serious?" Clark said. "You guys there is somebody being hurt."
Instead of helping, Bobbi said some students kept filming. The video was later uploaded to social media sites and those students are also in trouble with the district.
"The fact that it was filmed and it just seemed like she was waiting for her to get off the bus, it just seemed vicious," said, Travis Marschke, Bobbi's uncle who picks her up at the bus stop.
But the alleged bully's father, Greg Lyons, is standing up for his daughter. Earlier this week he told Action News his daughter is also a victim.
"It's two 12-year-olds having a fight," Lyons said. "I understand my daughter pulled her off the bus, but nobody saw what happened before that."
Lyons said the two girls were fighting the day before Friday's taped attack. Now his daughter will have to appear in court on a battery citation and conspiracy to commit battery.
