More details are starting to to emerge regarding the altercation between a Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) bus driver and a female passenger. Although the woman the still unnamed bus driver hit with a vicious uppercut was thought to be a 15 year-old teen, she is allegedly 25 years-old. 

Fox News reports that the driver was on the job for 22 years. WKYC reports that the driver has been suspended and shared an RTA press release regarding the incident, which also reveals that it occurred almost a month ago.

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.

Footage of the fight was uploaded to the Internet and shows the driver and passenger in a verbal altercation. After the woman swung at the driver, he got up and blessed her with the uppercut that had the Internet going nuts. “She want to be a man, I’m gonna treat you like a man,” the driver is heard saying after dealing his epic blow.

The video has resulted in a number of memes, many featuring Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat references.
