I'm a bus driver in a different state, we deal with different elements everyday! I don't feel he was wrong at all! Yes, he could have called PD! Look how long it takes the police to come and the passengers don't try to help the driver's out but if it's the other way around the passenger's will depend on the driver's to help!

in my state spiting on someone could be charged with attempted murder he did not know if she had Aides or what ! and she could have caused the deaths of not only the driver but every person on and off the bus, thank god he had the presence of mind to pull that bus off the road safely! glad he handled that he was not wrong!
