Woman banned from city buses after throwing her urine on female bus driver for wishing her a nice dayBy William Martin 12:20 PM December 6, 2017
A bus passenger became angry after the driver gave her a rude look, according to police in Washington D.C.
Police have arrested 38-year-old Opal Brown after being accused of throwing her urine onto the female bus driver.
Brown was convicted of assault at the D.C. Superior Court.
Judge Patricia Broderick sentenced Brown to 120 days in prison and 3 years probation.
She was also banned from city buses as part of her sentence.
Police said that Brown was on a Metro Transit bus in Washington D.C. when she assaulted the driver with her urine.
In a video of the attack, Brown was seen standing near the exit of the X2 bus as she was waiting to get off at the Benning Road and Minnesota Avenue stop.
It was at about 6:15 p.m. when the driver told her “have a nice day.” Brown replied: “are you talking to me?”
When the driver replied “yes,” Brown suddenly turned around and poured the cup of urine onto the female bus driver.
Brown then dropped the cup to the floor and quickly got off the bus.
Police said that surveillance video showed Brown urinating into the cup while riding in the back of the bus.
The driver was taken to a hospital to be decontaminated, and the bus was taken out of service for cleaning, police said.
The driver was employed for less than 30 days before the attack.
Brown confessed on Facebook that she was the woman police were looking for, but she joked about it.
The mother posted a photo of the police photo on her Facebook page with the words “if you know this woman call me I have something for her.”
She then added: “Ok yall know it was me who did the bad stuff to the metro operator!”
When Brown was arrested, she said that the driver had been rude to her, so she attacked her.
“The driver said ‘Have a nice day’ in a sarcastic way, she could have been more courteous,” Brown said.
