Detroit bus brawl: Shocking video shows driver come out fighting after passenger spits on her
Daily Mail ^ | August 22, 2013 | David McCormack

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.

This same thing happened in Cleveland, although the fight was not so prolonged. Spitting seems to have become the preferred act of provocation and aggression among the animal population.

Yeah, right.

The local megafauna goes at it, and all of a sudden, it's MMA fighting.

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.

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.

This same thing happened in Cleveland

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...

Baltimore Bus Driver Violently Attacks 'Disrespectful' Passenger (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?

And a more general comment - does anyone wonder why people don’t use public transit if they don’t have to?

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
