Assaulted MBTA Bus Driver Who Pushed Back Is No Longer an MBTA Bus Driver

Kevin Nazaire lost his job as an MBTA bus driver after a passenger didn’t pay her fare, became unruly, and threatened to cut him or have someone beat him up. “I felt a sharp object poke me. Before she could poke me further, I pushed her away from me. I didn’t want to harm her and I didn’t want her to harm me,” says Nazaire, who feels he was wrongfully terminated after the incident. “There’s no training for that, no training. Just call the authorities.” [WCVB]
