Seattle bus driver Dennis Echols was fired after he beat up 23-year-old passenger Ethan McKinney for spitting in his face.
Echols represents the latest entrant into the Bus Fight Hall of Fame, joining prestigious members like 67-year-old Thomas "Epic Beard Man" Bruso, who opened a can of whoopass on a fellow Oakland, California transit bus passenger.
While we here at TomoNews US don't condone Echols' actions, the King County Metro bus driver was faced with a problem public transport employees nationwide know all too well, a passenger who refuses to get off the f***ing bus.
McKinney, who for my money was high as a kite, repeatedly told Echols to "kill himself". While Echols quickly lost his temper, sh** only got real after McKinney spat in the 61-year-old's face as he was leaving the bus.
Echols reacted by hurling an eight-pound rubber wheel block directly into McKinney's face. He then proceeded to beat the living sh*t out of the guy.
Unsurprisingly, the incident cost Echols his job and both men are currently facing assault charges.
