Heroic Bus driver tosses complaining woman into traffic.


Recommended Posts

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (AP) -- A transit bus driver grabbed a woman by the hair, knocked her head into a pole, opened the door and tossed her into traffic after she yelled at him for missing her stop, police said.

The 52-year-old woman, who was not identified, suffered a broken shoulder.

Bus driver Mario Edney, 53, was arraigned Thursday on aggravated assault and other charges, said Officer Jillian Russell, a police spokeswoman. He was being held on $2,000 bail.

Edney said he had to skip the woman's stop Wednesday morning because of a detour, police said.

Transit officials intend to fire Edney, who has been suspended without pay, following a hearing, said Richard Maloney, a spokesman for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority.

reminds me of my favorite bus driver. He got out of the bus, runs up to two people having a fight, throws them out of his way, and gets back in the bus. He also watches the traffic cops tell him to stop, and keeps going. "fuck this. we ain't sitting here for a half hour"
