A video of a Cleveland bus driver who uppercuts a female passenger that was apparently taunting him during the bus ride has gone viral but until now, no one knew who the two were and there was only one video, now there is two.
At first, it was believed that the viral video showed a bus driver who attacked a teenage girl after getting tired of her taunting obscenities but new details reveal the two identities, and that the woman is not a teen and she apparently got physical also.
First, the Cleveland bus driver has been identified as 59 year old Artis Hughes.
The woman, not teenage girl, has been identified as 25 year old Shi’dea Lane.
The altercation which first seemed to be a physical attack led first by Hughes is now believed to have been a defense for the attack seen off camera view in one video online, that Lane done to Hughes.
Hughes along with other eye witnesses claim Lane first grabbed the bus driver around the throat and spit in his face. Afterwards, that is when Hughes can be seen delivering a brutal uppercut blow to Lane knocking her down but not out.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland bus driver Artis Hughes has been suspended and the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) state that an investigation into the incident which actually occurred on Sept. 18, has been launched.
