    Audio clip:

    A surveillance system captured the alleged assault Tuesday: the Columbus bus driver, choking the 9-year-old girl she was driving home.  District spokesman Jeff Warner says it's not clear why the driver acted as she did, but there's no defending her actions.

    (Warner) "We found substantial evidence to support that allegation.  We have since removed the bus driver - she's at home, without pay - and we're moving forward with providing a notice that our intent to terminate employment."

    The 3rd-grader is a special needs student.  Her foster mother has contacted the police, who are treating it as an endangering children offense.
