WINTER HAVEN, Fla., July 22 (UPI) -- Police are working to identify a Florida man who apparently knocked himself out for a few seconds by head-butting a bus out of anger over a $2 fare.
The Winter Haven Police Department, which posted video of the incident to its Facebook page, said the man got off the bus about 11:35 a.m. Saturday when it arrived at its stop.
Police said the man told the driver he wanted to go to another location, and he became "extremely agitated" when the driver told him it would be an additional $2 fare to travel to the other location.
The driver locked the bus and went inside the enclosed part of the bus terminal, leaving the passenger sitting alone on a bench. The man walked away, but returned to the still-locked bus four minutes later.
The video shows the man get a running start before head-butting the door of the bus, shattering a glass window.
The man falls to the ground and appears to be knocked out for a few seconds before collecting himself and running away.
"File this under what NOT to do when you get mad regarding bus fare -- ouch," police wrote on Facebook.
