The video, recorded by a fellow passenger, was posted on WorldStarHipHop.com and YouTube and began going viral on Reddit before it gained national attention.
It is unclear what the two first began fighting over, but the female can be heard threatening to fight the driver. The driver then says he will get his daughter and granddaughter to come down and deal with the 25-year-old woman, who then tells him to bring along his "mammy," the International Business Times notes.
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.
“We also saw the video today. Upon review, the driver was removed from duty and suspended. We are investigating," RTA representative Mary Shaffer told The Cleveland Leader.
