Guest trying to choke WDW bus driver results in bus driver placed on paid leave of absence

Advisory: This video shows a Walt Disney World guest trying to choke a Disney bus driver and the guest reportedly also threw his baby at the man! Parental discretion is advised (which is more than the male parent guest had).

From the YouTube description in the video, taken by one of the many eyewitneses, “…a man and his wife with her baby were waiting for the bus. There wasn’t enough room on the bus so the bus driver told them he would call another one. The man was enraged and THREW THE BABY AT THE BUS DRIVER. The woman got her baby and moved back away from them. (then I started recording) That’s when the man started attacking the bus driver then everyone called security… my friends and i were sitting by the line for the bus and I hurried to get my camera out. I missed recording the most intense part of this fight though.

It happened while they were at Disney’s Hollywood Studios waiting for the Epcot bus. You see enough in the 3-minute video that is VERY upsetting and it is the male adult guest who seems to be the perpetrator. What’s happening with some people nowadays?

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the Disney bus driver has been placed on paid leave of absence while what appears to be an unprovoked attack by the male guest is investigated. In the video you can hear the guest shouting at the bus driver, “We have a baby, you know”We’re supposed to get the priorities.”

Geesh! What’s up with some people nowadays?
