Bat Mitzvah bus tirade

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A bus chaperone is accused of going on a profanity-laced tirade towards a group of 12 and 13-year-olds and a piece of candy may be what started the incident.

It happened on the way home to Scarsdale after the party in Manhattan.

Fox 5 News aired audio of the incident:  "Who did it? Do it again, you (expletive), and you're (expletive)! The driver will kill you! He will kill you! One more time, you will die, you will bleed, out of your (expletive) nose!"

The person yelling in the audio is apparently a chaperone on a bus returning children from a Bat Mitzvah on Saturday May 19, 2013.

The person yelling was apparently upset one of the children had thrown an M&M that his the bus driver in the back of the head.

The rant continued:  "Do you want these kids to die? You're first out this (expletive) door! Welcome to my WORLD! You (expletive)! How do you feel now? Like the piece of spoiled (expletive) that you are.. little piece of (expletive). Learn something boys? (expletive) spoiled brats.. all of you."

Scarsdale 10583 first reported the incident.  Joanne Wallenstein founded the site to cover news about the Scarsdale, N.Y. area.

"When I heard the recording I said, 'Oh my God, this is going to be big'," Wallenstein says.

The identity of the person screaming is unknown but Wallenstein reported that sources identified them as a guest of the family having the Bat Mitzvah.

The parents of the girl who had the Bat Mitzvah sent out an email to the parents of other children saying the counselor needed to address serious safety issues but didn't exactly apologize for his behavior.
