Shi’dea Lane, the woman who caught that epic uppercut, gave her side of the story to Cleveland’s Fox 8:
“The bus driver didn’t think I had any money to get on the bus and I was looking for it, trying to tell him that I have money to get on the bus. Can you just let me find it? And from there it just escalated,” said Lane.
The situation escalated so much that eventually Artis Hughes, 59, of Cleveland, delivered an uppercut to Lane’s chin.
“It’s amazing to see how a man would hit a woman that hard. Are you serious? You could have pulled me off the bus. You can’t really touch anyone, but for real? You really punched me?” said Lane.
In her defense, she stated she doesn’t remember everything. You know, like hitting and spitting on the bus driver. Not defending the bus driver, but the above news clip conveniently leaves out Shi’dea provoking the bus driver.
