On Monday night, a woman in the back of a Metro bus was guzzling from a large bottle of Jack Daniels and telling her fellow passengers that she sold "meth and [expletive]." She also offered a group of three friends a drink, which they turned down.
At that point, one of the women in the group on the RapidRide route “either gave the suspect a dirty look or told her she was acting like a skank,” according to KOMO.
The Seattle Police Department reported that the whiskey-chugging woman then told the female passenger, "I'm going to get off the bus at your stop, and I'm going to beat your [expletive]."
After the passenger left to report to the driver what was happening, the suspect lifted her shirt, flashed one of the male passengers and asked for $5. When he refused her request, she threatened to stab him with a small knife if he didn’t pay up.
He then joined his female friend at the front of the bus and spoke with the driver. A 911 call was placed and the suspect went to the front of the bus to describe herself to the dispatcher in a scene the driver called "surreal."
The suspect exited the bus, but officers found her and booked her into King County Jail on robbery charges.
