This is the moment a woman flies into a rage at a bus driver as she punches and stamps on before being dragged away by cops.
CCTV cameras on the route 2 bus in Zhoukou, a city in Central China’s Henan Province, shows the woman angrily throwing a water bottle before launching into the attack on the morning of 3rd July.
According to reports, the passenger surnamed Chen had flagged the bus down in the city and lost her temper when the driver reminded her to always use official designated bus stops in the future.
She allegedly insulted and struck the driver, who took pictures of her with his phone to use as evidence.
What followed was more nearly two minutes of hysterical abuse by the woman as she tries to snatch his phone, screaming: “Give me the phone!”

The security footage shows her punching the driver and standing on the edge of his seat as the scuffle escalates.
She can be seen repeatedly stamping on the seated driver as he refuses to hand over his mobile phone.
The driver, who has since stopped the bus to prevent a crash, keeps the device out of reach as the angry woman stamps on the steering wheel, honking the horn.
As the video ends, the driver is seen speaking on the phone to police, who show up later and drag the woman away.
Zhoukou authorities said she had been detained for endangering public safety.
However, no punishment had been announced at the time of writing.
