In general, the black community has believed in disciplining children with a good spankin’ or two. However, some people got it confused thinking it also applies to grown folks. Tyrone Darell Hubbert, was arrested on Wednesday for taking off his belt and whipping a bus driver. According to reports from Miami-Dade Country police, Hubbert was charged with battery and is currently being held on $5,ooo bond.
This strange altercation occurred after this 18-year-old young man tried to pay the $2 bus fair by swiping his social security card. When this did not work after several tries, the bus driver told Hubbert that he needed to either pay or get off board. This is when Hubbert became angry and began his whipping tirade while the bus was in motion. The bus driver was able to stop the vehicle and hold his attacker until police arrived.
