ORLANDO, Fla. – An Orange County woman has been arrested after deputies say she hit a Lynx bus driver during a fight with another passenger.

Yukoma Miller, 40, has been charged with battery on a person 65 years of age or older in the Monday afternoon incident.

Deputies said they were called to the bus stop at Pine Hills Road and West Colonial Drive just after 1 p.m. 

The bus driver said she was driving when she heard a verbal argument between Miller and another passenger and told Miller to get off the bus, according to the report.

Deputies said Miller then tried to pull the driver out of her seat and punched her in the face before running off the bus.

A bus passenger waved down an officer and Miller was arrested at the ODAT, where she was hiding in the bathroom, according to the report.

Miller was booked into the Orange County jail and was also trespassed from Lynx transportation, deputies said.
