A 42-year-old bus driver was charged with misdemeanor assault on Tuesday after he punched a passenger who allegedly spat on him, the New York Daily News reports.

The dispute reportedly began after 23-year-old Rudolph Alexander boarded the bus with an empty metro card. When the driver, Robert Volkens, asked him to get off the bus, he allegedly refused. Another passenger eventually paid Alexander’s fare. But when the bus stopped at Avenue H and Nostrand Ave., Alexander allegedly spat on the bus driver twice and got off.

The driver reportedly followed him off the bus and punched him. Alexander was treated for minor injuries. Spitting on someone can lead to harassment charges but cops have to witness the act in order to make an arrest.
