WDW Guest Attacks Bus Driver

[url=]Stay classy there fella.[/url]

Wow, what a real winner. Rumor has it the driver was reprimanded for being assaulted. That guy should be locked up, and has no business being a father. If you didn't read the back story, at the beginning of the altercation he THREW THE BABY at the driver.

I hate people.

A member and apparent CM on WDWMagic posted the following:

"I work for bus operations and the entire incident was caught on the
security cameras.Every load zone has a high def camera that sees the bus
and load zone. We can actually zoom in with the cameras and read the
drivers name and his hometown on his name tag on their uniform. Also in
the video one of the gentleman on the bus,{I wont identify him} was one
of our plain clothes security officers and was in the load zone at the
time and witnessed the attack. Security was called along with the
OCSO,and yes it took them a few minutes to get to him. This was because
the bus was in load zone C7 which is in the charter bus lot and away
from the regular Resort load zones near the entrance to Hollywood
Studios. If you watch the video closely you will see flashing red and
blue lights illuminating the side off the bus.When the wife saw them
pull up the wife took off,and tried to hide in the crowd,and left her
child with the husband. Other guests identified her to security. They
were then removed from the bus and load zone and taken backstage. The
gentleman was then arrested and handcuffed for assault on the driver. He
is also facing charges for Terrorist threat due to the assault
happening on the bus, and public endangerment. They were also ejected
from the resort they were staying at,and trespassed from Walt Disney
World property.They will not be returning to the Happiest Place on Earth
ever again. Also everyone will be happy to hear the driver was not
reprimanded for the incident,and continued with his job that evening. I
actually saw and talked to him last night and he is doing fine.

Also forgot to add copy of the security tape was provided to the
OCSO,they are in turn forwarding it to the state attorney for possible
further charges of Felony child neglect and endangerment."

I don't like to link to other forums, especially when a lot of them (WDWMagic included) can be full of negative or even hateful people. There is some more good information from the CM and others though.

Source thread if you'd like to read more.

Creepy. So many people are so stressed there it's really impressive you don't see people "lose it" more often.

People. Sheesh. I saw a video saying there may be felony charges against the parents for putting their child in harm's way. What morons.

That's SO true. I'm really surprised that there aren't more people "snapping" due to stress in WDW. Think about it -- you save up for YEARS for one week of vacation, you want it all to go perfectly... I'd be stressed to no end.

I think this guy was going a little farther then just being "Stressed".

I usually find a good baby toss is a great way to calm down when I'm getting stressed out. Isn't that what everyone does?

It's particularly jarring that he thinks the baby is so precious and needs extra attention...so much so that he throws it as a weapon?

Wait..wait..wait.

They THREW the baby at the bus driver?

I am thrilled they will never be allowed back at WDW. They sound like a super family. sarcastic

Hi,

I'd be banned from this forum if I wrote what I actually thought. What a PO (which stands for neither post office nor parole officer).
