(BlackMediaScoop) The video shows a bus driver fighting a girl — and this time it was shot in Baltimore. But don’t forget the epic uppercut that went down on a bus in Cleveland!
A Baltimore bus driver has been suspended by the Maryland Transit Administration pending a police investigation into an altercation between her and a young female student on the No. 40 bus line about 2 p.m. Monday, according to a MTA spokesman.
A video of the fight was posted on YouTube (watch it below) and had already been viewed thousands of times as of Tuesday night. It comes on the heels of another video of a male bus driver punching a young woman on a bus in Cleveland that attracted national attention after going viral on the Internet.
In the video out of Baltimore, the bus driver can be seen grappling with the female student. The student appears to punch and kick the driver multiple times as the driver tries to hold the girl down. The bus driver finally seems to overpower the student, and asks her if fighting somebody makes her “feel better.”
Other passengers quickly move out of the way. One passenger tells the bus driver to leave the girl alone. The driver appears to say the fight was “about being disrespectful.” Another passenger suggests the girl get the “bus number” and “sue” the driver.
Terry Owens, the MTA spokesman, said the bus driver has worked for the MTA since 2003. He did not know exactly where the bus was when the altercation occurred. Owens said MTA Police have interviewed the driver and the student, neither of whom he identified, and are continuing their investigation. He was not sure whether witnesses to the fight, including the passenger who uploaded the video, had been interviewed.
