CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. – A Midlothian Middle School student could be charged with a crime after police said he attempted to light two students’ hair on fire while on a school bus.

Police said the incident happened on Valentine’s Day on a bus in the Smoketree South community.

The 13-year-old boy is accused of using a lighter to set the fire.

He also reportedly spit on one of the two students.

The name of the student has not been released because of his age.

The student was unsuccessful in his attempt to light the hair on fire and no one was injured during the incident.

A juvenile criminal complaint for three counts of assault and one count of disorderly conduct has been filed against the student.

A Chesterfield judge will now decide if the teen will face those charges.
