When I was younger, I used to think public transit wasn’t that bad.
Then I moved to a city full of nogs and I learned quick that nothing makes a bus smell worse and more unsafe than these animals.
Must suck to have to drive one all day.
Police have made an arrest in the case of a Metro Transit bus driver who was brutally attacked on the job last week.
The assault happened last week on the Route 5 bus in north Minneapolis. A rider caught the entire unprovoked beating on camera and posted it to social media.
“I don’t know anybody who can look at this video and think that it is anything less than disgusting,” said Metro Transit spokesman Howie Padilla.
Since then, transit police officers have been searching for the suspect.
On Wednesday morning, police said they’d taken 26-year-old Sterling Verloz Smith into custody, and he’s being held on charges of third-degree assault, and obstructing operation of a transit vehicle. He may also receive a fourth-degree assault charge, according to police documents.
