Shidea Lane, the 25-year-old woman, first believed to be a teen girl, caught on video tape, has broken the silence and spoke out about the day of her incident when she was on the receiving end of an uppercut delivered by a Cleveland bus driver, now identified as 59-year-old driver Artis Hughes.
As reported on MemphisRap.com, a video of a bus driver in Cleveland who uppercuts a female passenger that was apparently taunting him during the bus ride went viral after surfacing on the internet.
People were shocked at the video and the uppercut delivered to the woman, later identified as Shidea Lane, but after more sketchy details came out, some people are now taken up for the bus driver, and not Shidea, who at first seemed to be the victim.
As always though, there are four sides to every story, one side’s story, the other side’s story, real true full actual story and the story reported and spread.
Local news caught up with Shidea Lane, who gave her side of the story.
Shidea claims, she doesn’t remember everything because she was “hysterical” at that point, but says when she boarded the bus, Hughes thought she didn’t have any money but she says she did, and things just “escalated” from there.
Shidea says she still can’t believe, no matter the encounter, that “a man could hit a woman that hard” and she felt like she “was on Mortal Kombat.”
When asked did she hit Hughes, Shidea refused to comment until talking to her lawyer.
