It happened on a Wisconsin city bus in January, after a passenger started a fight with the bus driver. The driver, Scotty Wells, has since been fired for leaving the wheel.

The surveillance video shows Wells confronting a 17-year-old high school student boarding the bus. In the police report, Wells claimed he had asked for the boy’s information after allegedly having problems with him on previous rides, including vulgar language.

Wells told the boy, who was sitting down at the time, “When that boarder goes, the bus pass is no longer any good.”

The teen cursed at the driver and began punching him. Wells got out of his seat, punched the teen back and knocked him to the ground while the bus was still rolling. He reportedly told police that he feared for his safety.
