MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee County Transit System has reinstated transit supervisor William Bierman. Bierman was fired after he left the bus to help a woman being attacked. 

After being fired, Bierman was given an award by Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan. Support also came in from the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office and the Office of the Milwaukee County Executive. Many supported Bierman's reinstatement on social media websites like Twitter and Facebook.

The Milwaukee County Transit System announced Bierman will be awarded back wages.
