COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) -- An Artesia man faces charges he assaulted a school bus driver in Lowndes County Friday.

Sheriff's officials say Tyquan Lucius, 21, is charged with aggravated assault on a school official.

Several students on the bus exited through a rear emergency door, but it was not clear if they were still on the bus when the assault occured.
