Grumpy passenger smashes window after being woken up at bus terminus

A passenger who fell asleep on a bus threw a tantrum after the driver woke him up at a Sheung Wan bus terminal, smashing the vehicle’s windows.
The incident happened at around 9pm yesterday, where a 50-year-old passenger surnamed Choi was woken up by the driver as the bus arrived at the Central (Macau Ferry) Bus Terminus.

The route 619 bus driver was said to have spotted Choi still asleep on the upper deck after other passengers have disembarked upon reaching the last stop.

Shortly after the driver woke Choi up, the 50-year-old, in a fit of rage, grabbed the bus’ glass breaker and smashed the 1.5 meters x 1 meter window on the lower deck.

Choi also accused the driver of cutting short his “sweet dreams”. The driver then called the police.

Police arrested Choi on suspicion of criminal damage. He has been released on bail and will need to report to police early September.

The KMB bus route 619 travels from Kwun Tong to Sheung Wan and takes an approximately one-hour journey.
