A suspect wanted for allegedly assaulting a bus driver in New Iberia last month is now in custody.

New Iberia Police confirm that Travis Layne is in custody and is being held in the Iberia Parish jail. Layne was arrested and booked Thursday night around 8 p.m.

Layne is facing charges of Second Degree Battery, Battery on a School Teacher, Aggravated Obstruction of a Highway, Terrorizing, Criminal Trespassing, Intimidation in Schools, and Failure to Appear. A bond has not yet been set.

Layne and a second suspect, Neshana Collins, were wanted for allegedly assaulting a New Iberia bus driver while on their route on February 26. Collins turned herself in to police later that same day.

Police were dispatched to a physical altercation involving a bus driver and a parent; the bus driver was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Layne was already out on bond in connection with the 2019 shooting death of Garron Lewis, the son of New Iberia school board member Raymond "Shoe-Do" Lewis. The DA has asked a judge to revoke Layne's bond in light of the assault on the school bus driver.
