CLEVELAND -- Obscenities, screaming, yelling, and the incredulous expression on the faces of onlookers. That's what you'll see when you click on this video that was posted to Youtube.

It shows a fight between a Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority bus driver and a passenger. Another bus passenger recorded the moments leading up to the time when the driver punched the woman.

Apparently, the punched passenger and the driver began verbally fighting. The full video shows the woman talking to the driver for a few minutes, standing next to him as he is in the driver's seat. You can also see several other passengers recording the fight on their cell phones. After a few moments, the driver stands up and punches the woman.

The Regional Transit Authority issued a statement that reads:

"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.”
