Florida Man Punches Fellow Bus Rider Over Stinky Yawn
Chester Harris later told officers he felt disrespected. About 9:45 a.m. Aug. 14, he said, a man seated near him on a Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority bus yawned and failed to cover his mouth. The man’s breath stank, Harris said, so he asked him to cover his mouth. The man cursed out Harris in return, police said.
So Harris, 53, of St. Petersburg reared back and punched the fellow passenger, according to an arrest report. The other man sustained a bloody nose, but officers wrote that Harris said he “got what he deserved.”
Harris faces a charge of battery.
Fair or too foul!?
