Woman must wear 'fool' sign at school bus stop

MACON, GA. (AP) - A central Georgia judge gave the woman a choice: Wear a sign proclaiming that she was a fool or spend four weekends in jail.

The woman, 38-year-old Natasha Latrice Freeman, chose the sign. It says "I made a fool out of myself on a Bibb County Public Schools bus."

The Macon woman pleaded guilty to battery and making terroristic threats during a Monday hearing in Bibb County Superior Court.

Prosecutor Sandra Matson said she went onto a school bus April 4 and repeatedly struck her 11-year-old cousin and pulled the girl's hair. Freeman apologized during Monday's court hearing.

A Georgia newspaper reports that Judge Howard Simms sentenced her to wear the sandwich-board-style sign at the bus stop from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. for one week starting Dec. 10.
