(AP) _ A Lincoln bus driver seen on video punching a passenger and dragging him off the vehicle has been fired from his job.
City officials announced Friday that 43-year-old Troy Fischer of the Star Tran Bus Service was fired Thursday. He was cited on suspicion of misdemeanor assault in connection with the March 23rd incident.
The video shows Fischer punching the passenger 18 times, and then leaving the man on the side of a road.
The city's Public Works and Utilities Department, which runs Star Tran, says Fischer notified his supervisor that he was having trouble with a passenger. The supervisor instructed Fischer to let the passenger leave voluntarily or call police.
