It's one thing to be a strict disciplinarian, but even if your son has done something really obnoxious, you probably shouldn't follow him onto his school bus and brandish your gun at him -- especially if you're a sheriff's deputy in uniform. That kind of behavior can't help you get that promotion you're seeking. As a matter of fact, it could well cost this New Orleans officer her job.
It seems that a school bus driver was not impressed when 38-year-old Orleans Parish deputy Cotina Holmes boarded the bus her 16-year-old son rode, whipped out her pistol and began threatening the boy in front of numerous witnesses, mostly school-aged children. The bus driver called police to report the incident via cell phone as soon as the deputy got off the bus.
