An Indianapolis mother was arrested after police say she hopped on a school bus and hit a 10-year-old boy. The incident occurred Tuesday afternoon in Lawrence Township.

Kristen Dinkins, 29, allegedly went on the bus because her son was involved in a fight. The driver told her to leave but she didn't listen. She reportedly went over to her son and told him "get him, get him." Officers say she then hit the right side of the face of the boy her son had been fighting with. She is now facing charges of battery and criminal trespass.

Lawrence Township Schools released a statement regarding the incident:

"The Lawrence Township Schools' administration is appalled by the alleged events of yesterday regarding an incident on one of our buses. Under no circumstances are parents to board school buses without the express permission of the driver. Our commitment to the safety of our children is paramount. We will cooperate fully with the IMPD and Lawrence Police investigations."

I wouldn't encourage my son to fight. Defend himself, yes. And defend himself means if he needs to hit the other kid, fine, but only so that he can 'disarm' the kid or whatever and get away to someone that can help him. 

I would NEVER hit a child. I might put myself in between children fighting, but I would never strike another child even if my son got hurt. Yes, shit will happen. Kids will hit each other. My son having a boo boo or being involved in an altercation does not give me the right to hit that kid. I'm supposed to protect my son, not avenge him.
