Robert Vermont Bell, 17 of Villa Rica, was charged with aggravated battery and aggravated assault after repeatedly punching a girl in the face and strangling her on a school bus, according to the Douglas County Sentinel and a Douglas County Sheriff's Department arrest record.

The local high school junior appeared in Douglas County court Tuesday after the fight, which occured on Monday. Bell assaulted the girl until he was pulled off of her by several students, according to the newspaper report.

The Sentinel reported that, according to the warrant Magistrate Judge Barbara Caldwell read in court, Bell sprayed cologne on the victim who then threw the bottle out of the bus window. The victim was left with a swollen eye, busted lip and an open wound on her cheek.

Arrest records indicate the Bell is being held at the Douglas County jail on no bond.

I know ths kid and the story. The news report is very inaccurate. He did not attack her, he did not strangle her, he did not repeatdle punch her in the face. The bus video will show the truth. He hit the girl once. He's a good kid that made one bad choice. As a result he's been in jail for 4 months. The punishment far outweighs the crime.
