A simple route along the west side of Olympia, Washington, became a ride from hell on February 25, 2014.
As you can see in the KOMO news video above, a hood rat is swearing and harassing fellow passengers. So the bus driver tells the man to tone down his language, “I told you once. I’m not gonna tell you again,” or he would be evicted from the bus.
But the man continues to disrupt the bus, so the driver pulls the bus over, walks to the back of the bus to get the punk to leave.
Surveillance video from the Intercity Transit bus shows what happened next.
The man defiantly says to the driver, “If you hit me in the face, we will fight to the death.” The driver continues to tell the man to leave, but the punk would not leave and the driver eventually tries to shove him out the door.
The hood rat then starts to pummel the driver, hitting him more than two dozen times.
One passenger tries to pull the man off but the man pauses only long enough to mock the driver, “You bleeding? Is that real blood? Let me taste it.”
The punk eventually leaves the bus and the passengers and the driver call 911. The driver is treated in the hospital for broken bones in his face and released that night.
Olympia police say they used the video to identify the attacker at the downtown transit station. The man, identified as 24-year-old Kiel Duggins, was arrested on charges of third degree assault.
Prosecutors argued on Wednesday that Duggins was a threat to the community, and the judge agreed. His bail was set at $20,000, and he remains jailed.
