A bus driver in Florida was recorded on surveillance video literally kicking a special-needs off a school bus.

Stephanie Wilkerson, 41, faces charges of aggravated child abuse after video of the Sept. 28 incident was released on Wednesday by the Hillsborough State Attorney’s Office.

Wilkerson was driving the 8-year-old girl to school in Tampa when the student wanted to get off.  Told to wait her turn, the girl slapped and pushed the driver, according to police.

As she went down the stairs, Wilkerson appeared to kick the girl down the stairs and out of the bus — leaving the student with a fractured ankle.
