Posted on 08/22/2013 11:37:37 AM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi
Passengers on a Detroit bus were recently witness to a shocking no holds barred fight between the driver and a belligerent member of the public.
According to one witness, the incident happened after the unnamed passenger lost her cool when her ticket got stuck in the machine as she attempted to transfer.
The unruly passenger then started to argue with the driver, demanding her ticket back and even spat at the driver.
That proved to be the final straw for the driver who, dressed in her white work shirt, got up from her seat and lunged at the passenger. Video footage shows the driver hit the passenger around the head, using her keys as a weapon, while the passenger pulls on the driver's hair. For several minutes the pair battled each other using a variety of boxing, wrestling and even mixed martial arts moves.
At one stage another passenger attempted to get between the warring women and breakup the disagreement, but without any backup he decided to leave the pair to get on with it.
Other passengers actually egged on the women as they punched, kicked and clawed at each other.
Eventually, the driver pined the passenger down and bystander finally helped to break them up before either got further injuries. The unruly passenger was then forced off the bus.
The police arrived, but the fight had already been broken up and passengers were moved to a different bus.
The president of the bus drivers union in Detroit, Fred Westbrook, told FOX2 that the driver required stitches for bite marks, cuts and lacerations.

In addition to dog catchers, this town needs ‘people catchers’ with large cages for these feral animals.
I bet that bus driver’s not a natural blonde...
We’re going to need somebody to check if the drapes match the carpet. I volunteer you.
Every day happening in Chocolate City North.
“The police arrived,”
there are cops in Detroit?
Detroit = Mogadishu.
Luvs me some public transportation
it’s only shocking to those who don’t see it every other day.
this wasn’t just a shoving match, they were throwing haymakers and yanking the weaves..
Yes, but they all work part time now and they got the city covered 8-9 hours a day, different parts on different days
Two heifer’s brawling. I bet that coach was swaying from side to side like an amusement ride while those cows were going at it. Classy.
Looks like paradise to me.
Like chocolate sumos. The only person missing was Amber Lamps. She’s too beautiful to care.
Just keepin it real.
They fighting over the last rib bone?
The local megafauna goes at it, and all of a sudden, it's MMA fighting.
Dey ain’ ONE ****** dere dat EVAH missed a meal ... not ONE !!
When you spit on someone you have an ass-whipping coming to you.
You deserve it.
There is nothing more dangerous than a pissed off fat black woman. They would attack a Hippo.
Shocking? This is Detroit. Run of the mill.
Couple of heavyweights. Blonde doos are popular in the Afro-American community.
I thought I saw a Kimura (Lee Simmons) armbar in there.
Put them in the ring and call it the ‘big butt’ championship.
Getting spit at by blacks was a daily occurrence in DC. At least it was for me. Nothing ever hit, they would just spit in our path and most people ignored it. My co-worker would take offense and I always tell him not to give them the power to offend you.
There was also a much less publicized bus driver vs. passenger fight in Baltimore last year. Here's the account with a link to the video...
A Baltimore bus driver has been suspended after a video showing her manhandling a young passenger went viral.
The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) confirmed Tuesday that the unidentified bus driver, who was captured in the video lunging at an unidentified high school student, had been removed from duty following a police investigation into the bizarre incident.
In the video the 9-year transportation veteran is seen getting into a violent scuffle with the female passenger as horrified passengers flee. After receiving criticism from onlookers, the bus driver is heard saying that the dispute was "about being disrespectful."
MTA spokesman Terry Owens confirmed that both the driver and the female passenger, who was seen kicking and punching the driver, have been interviewed by authorities.
Trivia Question: What do the Detroit, Cleveland, and Baltimore bus driver vs. passenger fights all have in common?
Shocking? It’s Detroit.....
there are cops in Detroit?
I remember when the City of Detroit needing RoboCop was just considered science fiction and not a foretelling.
No cracka’s involved to blame it on, move along everything is running smoothly.
I didn’t think that Sumo wrestlers punched and kicked.
OK, I started LOL at “megafauna”.
And a more general comment - does anyone wonder why people don’t use public transit if they don’t have to?
What a disgrace.
My dog is better behaved than this pair.
I lay the corruption and destruction of black morals at the feet of LBJ.
LBJ: may you rot in hell.
Seriously, though, I didn't see any MMA moves. The article author makes the fight sound like it was this...
Good Grief! They are all fatter than Hippos.
I've gotta send that to my brother.
LOL! That made my day.
They can’t help themselves, they foam at the mouth.

My reaction too... It can take up to an hour or more for police to arrive after a 911 call in Detroit - must be a great place to live. /s
The bus drove past a white person 10 minutes before this fight happened... so it was the white person’s fault...
