The woman seen catching a vicious uppercut to the chin on a Cleveland bus is speaking. Shi’dea Lane, 25, is who was seen in the now infamous video that showed her getting into a confrontation with who has been identified as Artis Hughes, the driver of the RTA bus. Playing the role of the innocent victim, Lane claims the situation started over a search for bus fare.
“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?” Lane told My Fox 8 News.
The altercation occurred on September 18th, but went viral recently after the video was posted on World Star
Hip-Hop. As for the fade she caught at the hands of Hughes, who was on the job for 22 years, that day? “It felt like I was on Mortal Kombat,” she said. “It just hurted.”
Lane allegedly spat on and grabbed the bus driver’s neck. However, when asked about whether or not she instigated the incident, she quickly said that she needed to speak to her legal counsel first. “No see, that’s why I want to talk to my lawyer,” she said. “I don’t really want to, I can’t answer that question.”
