The mini-bus driver who was caught on camera snatching a phone from a passenger and demanding she leaves his bus after she complained about the loud music, has been slapped with four charges and will be facing two others.
28-year-old bus driver Josh Harry of Soesdyke, appeared in Court and was charged with making loud and continuous noise, improper conduct of driver, failure to carry a conductor and breach of condition of road service license.
He pleaded not guilty to the four charges and was released on $30,000 bail.
The Police Force has indicated that he will face two additional charges of damage to property and assault.
Harry is expected back in Court on the 19th April.
In a video posted on Facebook, a female passenger of the mini-bus could be heard pleading with the driver to lower the profanity laced music that was being played in the bus.
The man refused to lower the music, and instead pulled to the side of the roadway where he asked the complaining passenger to leave the bus. When the woman refused as she continued to video record their confrontation, he snatched the phone from her hands.
He was confronted by some of the other passengers in the bus and a Police report was filed. He was arrested the day after the incident went viral on Facebook.
