An employee was suspended after a family claimed two boys were assaulted during a school bus drill at Chartiers Valley Middle School in Bridgeville, WPXI reported Friday.

Kenneth McCabe told WPXI a school district bus attendant and Collier police officer roughed up his sons , KiShaun and VaShaun Walls.

The report does not indicate what employee was suspended.

McCabe told WPXI that KiShaun was slammed to the bus steps and to the ground, and VaShaun was handcuffed. The incident started when McCabe's youngest son, Reese, got off the bus and the attendant didn't like it, McCabe said. He told WPXI his sons defended themselves but felt the adults were in the wrong.

One son reported feeling concussed and the other had a wrist injury, WPXI reported.

Chartiers Valley School District released the following statement to WPXI: "The proper authorities were immediately notified and began an investigation. The district is conducting an investigating as well and will take appropriate action once the investigations are completed."

The Tribune-Review could not reach the school district or the police department Saturday morning.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
