MORROW COUNTY, Ohio – Authorities say a state trooper was assaulted on a Greyhound Bus Thursday afternoon, and the violence was caught on camera. It happened on a bus traveling from Cleveland to Columbus.
The driver called 911 to have a disorderly female passenger removed from the bus.
Zach Baugh, of Parma, tells Fox 8 he was on the way to family when the incident happened.
He recorded the video.
“It was unfortunate, it was pretty mindblowing,” he said.
“It looked like the lady was having a little bit of a personal problem and she was going back and forth on the bus and yelling outrageous comments and disturbing a lot of the riders.”
A State Trooper responded to the call, getting onto the bus when she arrived.
“She was asking real respectfully and that’s when the suspect attacked her– it was out of the blue, it seemed like she was going to cooperate, and then it just happened,” Baugh said.
Two passengers exit the bus shortly after the fight begins to pull the woman off of the Trooper, who then arrested the woman.
The Trooper only suffered minor injuries.
The passenger has not yet been charged, but is facing charges of assault on a corrections employee.
