POLK COUNTY, Fla. (BAY NEWS 9/CNN) - Authorities say a school bus driver is facing charges for taking a bus full of kids to her house to stage a fight in her yard.

"Patrice Sanders is our poster-child, and you know what I want to say to Patrice? Come on girl, what are you thinking? How in the world could you allow and promote and encourage children to fight?" said Sheriff Grady Judd.

Video of the fight was captured on a cell phone.

Police say sanders bypassed the kids' bus stops to take them to the fight. Once there, she joined in with some 32 students cheering on the fighters until they were exhausted.

The fight ended but started up again on the bus.

A parent contacted officials and Sanders was arrested.

The driver is now expected to appear before a judge this weekend.
