The Indiana mother whose three kids were killed in a bus stop crash charged at the driver convicted in their deaths in a chaotic courtroom scene that ended with her in handcuffs, according to reports.
Brittany Ingle was escorted out of Fulton County Courthouse after lunging at and striking the driver, Alyssa Shepherd, on Wednesday, news station RTV6 reported.
The outburst came moments after Shepherd was sentenced to four years in prison for mowing down four children in October 2018 as they crossed the street to get on their school bus.
Ingle’s three kids were killed in the crash while another boy was critically injured, the outlet reported. Her daughter, Alivia Stahl, 9, and twin sons, Mason and Xzavier Ingle, 6, were pronounced dead at the scene.
The Ingle family had pushed for a tougher sentence, urging the judge to give Shepherd the maximum penalty, which is 21 years and six months behind bars.
“There’s a lot of different talk, but children still remain our greatest gift and if we aren’t going to protect them and hold people accountable when they get hurt, then we may as well just get rid of the laws,” the siblings’ grandfather, Michael Schwab, told the court, according to news station WSBT.
As Shepherd was being escorted out of the courtroom, the grieving mom allegedly lunged at her and struck her in the face, according to RTV6.
“She was moving to the door and Brittany came out of her seat and went at her and got a strike in of some kind,” Fulton County Prosecutor Michael T. Marrs told the outlet.
Ingle was booted from the courtroom and arrested on a charge for misdemeanor battery, WSBT reported. She was released from jail on Thursday morning.
