ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida father who stormed onto a school bus and threatened children because his 13-year-old disabled daughter had been bullied is apologizing for the way he handled the situation.

James Willie Jones told The Associated Press on Monday he is sorry for his "inappropriate use of language" and for the way he handled the situation. But he says his daughter suffers from cerebral palsy and he could not stand by and watch her suffer.

He was charged last week with disorderly conduct and disturbing a school function for the Sept. 3 incident in Sanford, just north of Orlando. He later posted $2,000 bail and was ordered to stay away from the driver and county school buses.

Jones plans to hold a news conference with his attorney Tuesday.
