Bus driver Alisa Miller, 53, pleaded not guilty in 61st District Court to a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery.

The fight happened on April 30 in the area of Tremont Boulevard and Beaumont Drive NW, near Union High School. Authorities say it started on a Rapid bus and then moved onto the sidewalk. Miller and teen, 15, both sustained minor injuries.

Video released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed with the City of Grand Rapids shows the confrontation.
