HAZLE TOWNSHIP — Students seen in home video, along with the driver of the bus, will be disciplined after being accused of harassing a teen with autism.

Cell phone video from last week shows Hazleton Area School District students throwing things at the students and cursing at him.

The bus company has fired the school bus driver for allowing the bad behavior.

The district superintendent said the children will be cited with disorderly conduct and harassment.
