The elderly white man, 74, who was pushed off a bus by a young black woman, 25, has died from injuries sustained from the fall.
On March 21, 2019, Cadesha Bishop, 25, argued with 74-year-old Serge Fournier on a bus in Las Vegas. Seconds later, as Fournier was exiting the bus using a walker, Bishop pushed him with both hands off the bus. Fournier landed face-down and motionless on the sidewalk.
Here’s the surveillance video of the incident:
When officers first arrived at the scene of the incident, Fournier said he didn’t want to receive any medical attention even though he was bleeding from the head. However, later that night, he was admitted to a hospital. He died on April 23 from injuries sustained from the fall. The coroner ruled the death a homicide. The cause of death was described as complications from blunt force trauma to the torso.
Bishop had fled the scene of the crime before police arrived. It was only after Fournier’s family notified police on May 3 that he had passed away that Bishop was arrested three days later, on May 6.
Bishop has been charged with the murder of an elderly, vulnerable person. Police officials say that Bishop had been yelling profanities at people on the bus. When the bus stopped, Bishop and Fournier began to argue after Fournier told her to “be nicer to passengers.”
Bishop was held at the Clark County Detention Center on a $100,000 bail. She has since been released and placed under electronic monitoring. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 17 and she will remain under house arrest until that time, according to the Las Vegas Journal-Review.
Court records in Clark County, Nevada indicate Cadesha Bishop has a history of violence:
- In March of 2012, she was charged with battery in a domestic violence case. Bishop agreed to a plea deal: she had to complete community service and “impulse control counseling” and to remain out of trouble.
- In January 2013, Bishop was again charged with battery. She pleaded guilty more than a year later, and got a suspended jail sentence of 90 days, domestic violence counseling, and more community service.
