BEND, OR -- A Cascades East bus driver has been charged with 4th degree assault and strangulation of a passenger.  Last week the driver, 44-year-old Michael Brinster demanded that a passenger, who was wearing socks, get off his bus for not wearing shoes and he refused. Deschutes County D-A John Hummel says Brinster tried to forcibly remove him and put a chokehold on the passenger, 25-year-old Dorian Zane Allstot, a transient, and dragged him off the bus. Hummel says Allstot lost consciousness for a few seconds. Allstot later challenged Brinster to a fight, pulled out a knife and spit in his face. Hummel charged Allstot with harassment and menacing. Hummel says there is no law requiring bus riders to wear shoes. Photo credit Central Oregon Daily.
