Woman, Shi'dea Lane Who Got Uppercut Punched By Cleveland Bus Driver Speaks "It Felt Like I Was On Mortal Kombat. A 'Finish Him!" Type Of Hit" [Video]


Video After The Jump


The woman who was on the receiving end of a vicious uppercut by a Cleveland bus driver is speaking out about the ordeal.


25-year old Shi'dea Lane of Cleveland spoke to Fox 8 News about what happened.


I don’t remember everything, because I was so hysterical at the time,” said Lane, 25, of the September 18th incident. “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.”


In the video Lane can be seen arguing with the driver, identified as 59-year old Artis Hughes. Lane spits on the driver, then hits him.


Hughes responds by saying, "you going to jail now" several times before throwing an uppercut that knocks Lane to the floor. Hughes told police he was just defending himself, but Lane doesn't see it that way.


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. It felt like I was on Mortal Kombat. It just hurted. It was almost like a ‘finish him!’ type of hit,”


When asked about the fact that she hit and spit on Hughes first, Lane didn't want to comment.


"No see, that’s why I want to talk to my lawyer.  I don’t really want to, I can’t answer that question.  It’s more than that,” she said.

According to WKYC-TV, Hughes has been suspended by the Regional Transit Authority.


The RTA issued the following statement:


RTA saw the video posted on YouTube of the operator incident on October 11. Through the investigation, we believe the incident occurred on Sept. 18. Upon identifying the driver, he was immediately suspended and removed from duty. His behavior is absolutely unacceptable. RTA apologizes to our customers for this incident. A full investigation continues.


Neither Hughes or Lane pressed charges initially after the incident.


This story has gained a lot of attention on social media with #getoffmybus and #uppercut gaining popularity on Twitter.

He was like you gonna learn today.Nobody stood up and told that disrespectful child to sit down and shut up and have respect for her elders so don't speak up now after dude had to check her like a man . the more we defend this kinda of behavior from kids the more they think its ok to be disrespectful to grown folks.Like my grandmother used to say in her time kids did wicked things but these days kids are evil monster and out of control.They respect noone not even the parents that gave them life, GOD,POLICE,TEACHER and even themselves.Not all kids but a large % and its getting worst by the minute. Then there was someone in the background saying she is a girl......she wasn't a girl saying all those things to that grown man.every body tought that s*** was funny until s*** got real.smh Shi'dea Lane you got what you deserve real talk hopefully you learn something today"respect your elders"

@Tiff 1) Learn to spell first, go back to school or something.
2) Taking mirror pics with a tablet doesn't scream "poor, oppressed woman" to me.
3) If you're getting this mad because of a comment I made on a website, then I'd love to see you acting calm and collected while you are doing your job then some idiot came and started pushing you and spitting in your face. But let me guess, since you are a woman, you would be allowed to punch her right? LOOOOOL
4) Feminists like you are true turncoats: you want to be treated equal to men when you gain something from it, but as soon as there is a disadvantage to it, you'll quickly say "Oh I can't do that, I'm a woman". You can't have the best of both worlds, keep it moving and I advise you to not write any more senseless comments that reveal your lack of understanding.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but who gives a f*** about right or wrong, she spit on another human being. F putting hands on him first. I don't want a case, settlement, charges, none of that legal b******* if you spit on me. I never seen a female in my entire life more deserving of what she got.

@Tiff "sounds like you want to beat me now..You wish you could beat me don't cha.. Yea I can spot em a mile away.." WOW.... now don't get me wrong but you do seem a little crazy... *facepalm* BTW nobody said the driver couldn't have reacted more maturely, it's just that you get what you ask for - she was clearly out of line, acting like an uneducated, immature and ratchet person. And as soon as she was hit, she pulled the "I'm a woman, and I'm so fragile, don't hit me please" card. "War on women"??? In poor, uncivilized, highly religious countries women are oppressed, but I doubt that's where you live... And you can't call it a "war" for God's sake. SMH
Comment by Tiff on October 13, 2012 at 6:30pm
I bet you if a dude was trying him that like he wouldn't of hit him...he would of been scared and followed procedure...or better yet he would of been like it's cool man..you don't have to pay...I only harass women because They are weaker...so I could look stronger...
