Multiple charges are pending against a passenger who allegedly punched an Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority bus driver Thursday afternoon.
Erie Police say a man refused to get off the bus after the driver asked him to wear a mask.
Police said the passenger showed the bus driver his COVID-19 vaccination card instead.
The EMTA driver continued to tell the passenger he couldn’t get on the bus because he didn’t have a mask.
Police say that is when the passenger punched the driver twice in the face.
