This is the moment a passenger repeatedly punches a bus driver for reportedly not pulling over where he wanted to get off because it was an unauthorised stopping area.
According to reports, the unnamed thug rang the bell on University Avenue in the municipality of San Nicolas de los Garza located in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon, but the bus driver was unable to let him off because it was an unauthorised area.
When the driver was able to pull over at the nearest bus stop, the angry passenger reportedly attacked him for letting him off too far away from where he wanted to go.
In the video footage, filmed by another passenger and posted on social media, the suspect is seen wearing a baseball cap and striped top as he attacks the bus driver, who protects his head while still sitting in the driver’s seat.
After throwing several punches, the man backs out of the bus and the furious driver jumps to his feet and chases him out of the door.
The heavyset passenger then walks away, peering over his shoulder to make sure the angry driver is not following him.
It is unclear if the local authorities are investigating the incident.
