There are now multiple charges pending against a passenger who allegedly punched an Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority bus driver on Thursday afternoon.
Erie Police said that a male passenger refused to get off the bus after the EMTA driver asked him to wear his mask.
Police said that the passenger showed the bus driver his COVID-19 vaccination card instead.
The EMTA driver continued to tell the passenger he could not get on the bus since he did not have a mask.
Police said that this is when the passenger punched the driver twice in the face.
