very important to me, need your opinion!!!

OK Here's the story...
My wife was on the PACE bus going to school. This was her only 2nd time she took that bus. When the bus stopped to let people out she was leaving as well, however the driver grab her arm and pulled her closer to him and said: "will you be angry if I fall in love with you?", and then ha also said that he wouldn't let her off the bus. He closed the door, and drove off still holding on to my wifes arm. He let her get off on the next stop.
So I called and complained Friady when it happened and still haven't heard anything from Pace. I'm considering getting a lawyer.
Any comments are appreciated, and of course lawyer referrals as well.

let it go, tell her to get a can of pepper spray and next time spray his ass down, cause you wont get crap from the lawyer or the bus company.

next time hose his ass down and call the cops!

Sounds good, but I'd make sure I reported this to PACE also just to leave a trail for the lawyers and cops.

I agree, I got some for Stace and it has a cool case so she won't spray it by accident. They had nice key-chaine size at Gander Mountian.

Report him to PACE. And then blow it off. Weird shit happens on public transportation. After she gets used to how things work and what to watch out for, she'll be fine. She should be more aware and on guard for stuff like that to happen. Think about it, if the bus drivers are that weird, think about the passengers. More weird shit will happen. She needs to be more aware and be willing and ready to fend off any "attack" like this.

thats a crock of shit. Maybe you just talked to the wrong person at Pace.. it seems like most companies would let someone go for somthing like that on the first offense.

Saying out of place words is one thing, but restricting someone from exiting is another. Thats what I'd be more concerned about. Continue to call and work up the ladder to whoever is the highest boss you can talk to.. You should be able to atleast get that driver fired if that is your goal.. hopefully the next driver will be better and riding the bus will feel safe for your wife again.

it's interesting some of you guys say he can't really take this to court, when people sue and win over real ridiculous claims... whatever.

bottom line is, even if they get rid of this guy, there might be another. And if not the driver, it might be someone else. Pepper spray isn't a bad idea. Neither would be taking some self defense classes... u can never be too safe. Just my .02

problem is it would cost to much to sue on such a small defense of injury.

thats why i am suggesting, to spray that cock sucker and call the cops, but i would still call and have that fuck fired!

while I am 100% on your side, think of it from pace's side....you have a guy calling claiming his wife was assaulted and kidnappeed briefly by one of your drivers.

where is the proof? did she call the police immediatly? did she get a bus number? any witnesses?

I beleive the guy should be arrested and jailed.

but sounds like if you want any action done this is going to be a case of he said/she said.

i agree with OdDy, give her mace, a taser , a gun whatever to protect herself.

I say you ride the bus and catch this prick...

grab him by the arm and ask "will you be angry if I fall in love with you?" and he puts up anytype of fight... kick his ass!

Definitely file a police report. This driver needs a record. Grabbing her arm may only be assault, but closing the door and driving away ( keeping her on until HE"S ready to let her off at the next stop) is kidnapping.

A compliment is one thing, but this joker went WAY over the love-sick line.

Just wondering, but would PACE have cameras on their busses?, If so I would check that route.

My wife was assaulted at AMC 30 and at first she drove home and waited for me to get home from work, but I called the theatre and the cops right away and had the guy arrested and went to the police station and my wife pressed charges.

I'd ride the same bus she rode in, just chill in the back, then get a piece of rope and choke the hell outta him while he's driving. Actually, wait, that's too dangerous, i'll go the bat to the face.
