This is the moment an unruly bus passenger wallops the driver on the head with a flask of tea after demanding to get off between stops and the driver says no.

CCTV cameras inside the public bus captured the argument between passenger Mr Lou and bus operator Chen Guoyong in the city of Shengzhou in East China’s Zhejiang Province 4th October.

In the video, the passenger is seen quarrelling with the driver and reportedly demanding that he stop so he can get off.

However, Mr Chen refuses his request, explaining that it is against regulations to allow passengers to board or leave the vehicle outside of designated bus stops.

As the argument escalates and the pensioner gets to his feet, Mr Chen stops the vehicle and continues the argument with the passenger who is now standing by the front doors and demanding they be opened.

When Mr Chen refuses to grant the request, Mr Lou runs over to the seated driver and strikes him on the back of the head with his metal flask of hot tea.

As passenger and driver continue to grapple at the front of the bus, the pensioner can be seen grabbing Mr Chen’s hair and wrestling him.

Mr Lou is eventually subdued by three passengers who rush forwards from the back of the bus.

According to reports, Mr Chen was treated for injuries to his head, face and right hand, and he remains hospitalised at Shengzhou People’s Hospital.

Mr Lou was detained and formally charged with a public order offence on 7th October.
