Transit Police have arrested the bus driver involved in this morning’s ticket-rage smashup in Kenmore Square and charged her with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and operating to endanger.

Lataria Milton, 34, a 10-year veteran of the T, will be arraigned tomorrow morning in Roxbury District Court, said authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo.

Milton hit a meter maid and three other cars after she was slapped with a $75 ticket for parking illegally in the heart of Kenmore Square this morning, authorities said.

The veteran city parking enforcement supervisor who remains hospitalized this afternoon, told her boss, “Tommy, if the bus didn’t hit the vehicle first, I’d be dead,” Boston Transportation Department Commissioner Thomas J. Tinlin told the Herald

That picture has 'tude written all over her face.

Some of those comments are priceless too. Here is an example of one ===> the only mechanical problem with the bus was "the nut behind the wheel".

The headline makes it look like the bus driver physically struck the ticket writer with her hands. I was looking for the part where she was punched.
Or am I reading it wrong?

The words “arrested for attempted murder” do not appear.

The word “FIRED” does not appear.

The word “prison” does not appear.

Maybe because the bus driver looked like Obama’s fat daughter and the meter maid was just some cracker?
Fat, incompetent, nasty, overpaid unionized and entitled government
employees should all be canned.

Latrina looks like an angry black woman. Don’t cross her or you’ll get bus-ted.

Got a bit of attitude from a gal today at the VA department of motor vehicles. I was trying to correct a mistake that someone had made previously. Got a bit of attitude about how I had more or less lied. I was only trying to explain how the applicant (who I was helping) had not asked for a learner’s permit, but was asking to take a driving test.

Of the eight or so employees running the counters, only one might not have been an “affirmative action” hire.

Looks like just another entitlement-sucking union whore to me.

It was attempted murder with a motor vehicle. Lacteria tried to run her over with her government provided bus, smashing three other private vehicles in the process.

Her entitlement mentality likely made her feel she could park anywhere she wanted to because she was a gubmint employee.

You know, if there was a waiting period and a background check for buses, this mass autocrushing incident wouldn't have happened. We should all join together in a bipartisan effort to have federal background checks for all bus transactions!
