Transit police in Philadelphia are investigating an incident in which a bus driver was caught on video throwing liquid on a passenger and hitting the woman during a dispute.
Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority spokesman Andrew Busch tells The Philadelphia Inquirer the incident happened around 8 a.m. Friday in the Olney section of the city.
The video shows the driver walking toward a woman and dousing her with liquid from what appears to be a water bottle and hitting her twice in the face.
The footage was posted on Facebook and doesn’t show what provoked the confrontation. But Busch says investigators believe it was a fare dispute.
Busch says SEPTA police have interviewed the driver, but haven’t identified the woman involved.
The driver hasn’t been named or charged.
