MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- MCTS officials say a bus driver has been suspended after an incident on a bus Monday afternoon.
According to MCTS, a woman got on a bus at 27th and Wisconsin and started shouting at the driver. The woman tossed a soda can at the driver, reached around the security shield, and her hand hit the driver's head.
The person responsible eventually got off the bus and ran away. The driver has been with MCTS for fourteen months.
MCTS says they, along with the Milwaukee Police Department are investigating the incident.
