Greyhound Bus Driver Beaten With Padlock

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – A Greyhound bus driver is recovering from facial injuries after a passenger beat him with a steel padlock in Glenwood Springs.

Authorities say Agapito Valencia, 48, of Albuquerque, N.M., beat the unnamed driver on Thursday afternoon at the Tomahawk Truck Stop, which serves as a Greyhound station.

The (Glenwood Springs) Post Independent reports that Valencia approached the driver at some point before arriving in Glenwood Springs asking questions about the next stop. When the driver didn’t understand the question, Valencia allegedly started yelling racial epithets.

When the bus stopped, Valencia allegedly followed the bus driver into the restroom and began hitting him in the face with the padlock.

Valencia faces assault and other charges.

    Yeah and most of our ancestors had to learn english too, does that make them bad people? So what, this guy was a work doing his job and was brutally attacked with a lethal weapon. I think we need to have a little compassion for these victoms of idiots. I feel badly for this working man and his family, the other guy can rot.
