WASHINGTON - Police arrested a woman they say sprayed a D.C. Metrobus driver with a juice drink while the operator was behind the wheel.
The incident happened Tuesday around 5 p.m. aboard a bus in the 4300 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in the Southwest.
Officers say 24-year-old Allison Thomas boarded the bus with two children and confronted the driver for allegedly pulling away before she was seated.
Thomas allegedly began cursing at the driver and doused him in the face and body with juice from a bottle of Sunny Delight that she was carrying.
The driver was able to safely stop the bus. Thomas exited the vehicle and was taken into custody about a block away.
She faces charges of resisting arrest and simple assault. She will also be charged as a fugitive from justice for and outstanding assault warrant in Prince George’s County.
The bus driver was not injured.
About a month ago, 38-year-old Opal Brown was arrested after police say she threw a cup of urine at a Metrobus driver in Northeast D.C.
