BALTIMORE, Maryland—A Baltimore bus driver is suspended for an alleged bus beating that’s gone viral online.

Witnesses say the girl beaten up in the video kept calling the driver bad names. That’s when the female bus driver snapped and started hitting the teen.

From the video that was uploaded to the Internet, it appeared no one jumped in to help. Some bystanders, however, pulled out their cameras.

“The bus driver is beating the girl, beating that little girl up,” said one witness. “It may have just been her snap day. She should never put her hands on her, that’s all I’m saying.”

“It’s very stressful, and you never know what else was going on with this particular driver.”

Police have talked to the driver but right now she’s not facing any charges.  This is just the latest in a string of bus brawls across Baltimore.
