Metro bus driver suspended
A Metro bus driver who was charged with assault after allegedly getting into a fight with a customer over bus fare has been suspended without pay for five days, according to Metro spokesman Reggie Woodruff.
Metro Transit Police charged Vento Mickens with simple assault on June 18. Mickens was driving a 71 bus to Buzzard Point when the alleged incident took place near Georgia Avenue and Van Buren Street NW.
Mickens, who has worked for Metro for more than 23 years according to Metro officials, was on administrative leave pending the internal investigation. He is serving his suspension this week.
