A former TISD bus driver is charged with injury to a child for allegedly removing a seventh grader from his bus by putting him in a head lock.  48 year old Adam Maurice Welcher allegedly grabbed the boy from behind in a bear hug and video of the September 25th incident shows the boy trying to pry Welcher’s hands away.  The student’s mother filed a complaint after her son complained about neck pain.  Welcher faces six to 24 months in state prison if convicted. He has been released on a $10,000 bond.
