SHAKER HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) –

Former RTA bus driver Artis Hughes was sentenced on Tuesday to three days in jail and fined $1,000.

Hughes was convicted of punching passenger Shi’dea Lane last September. A verbal altercation turned physical on the bus in Beachwood when Hughes stood up and punched Lane. The upper cut came after a long string of profanity between the two.

Hughes has since been fired from RTA. Lane was found guilty of disorderly conduct last month.
