COMMACK (WABC) — A Long Island bus aide is under arrest, accused of assaulting a student while riding on a school bus in Commack.

The incident happened around 4 p.m. on September 30 as the students headed home from North Ridge Elementary School.

Authorities say 39-year-old Richard Mason, a bus aide for Acme Bus Corp., attempted to discipline a 5-year-old developmentally disabled boy by grabbing his arm and twisting it behind his back.

The boy suffered a fractured arm.

Mason is charged with third-degree assault and acting in a manner to injure a child.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
