Bus Rider Breaks Window, Flees

Broken window on the 35 bus
Broken window on the 35 bus

Early morning on August 8, passengers onboard the 35 bus from Old Town to Ocean Beach had an unexpected delay. A woman on the bus decided to smash one of the vehicle’s windows with her elbow for no apparent reason.

The driver pulled the bus to a halt and asked the woman to explain her actions. No answer was given; instead, she began to shriek, “Don’t touch me!” at the bus driver and then fled the scene. The driver had not attempted to touch or make a citizen’s arrest.

The police were called and two patrol cars arrived shortly thereafter. One of the units went in pursuit of the woman but was unable to find her.

After a wait of nearly 30 minutes, the passengers were able to continue their journeys via another bus.

That was some strong elbow she had. Probably going to 24-hour Fitness.

Yea, except tweakers go to 72-hour Fitness.

I think she was just plain old nuts, with a deranged right elbow.
