An Alabama man was kicked off of his Greyhound bus in Forsyth and taken to jail for drinking and fighting around 6:31 p.m. on Nov. 12.
According to the incident report, the driver, Elisvan Barquilla told deputy Shania Hawkins he heard loud voices in the back of the bus as he was driving near Johnstonville Road on I-75 S. He said he then heard everyone screaming “Fight!” and he pulled over into the weigh station and called police. Passenger Thurman Green, 27, of Florida told the deputy Rodriquez Parrish, 28, was talking very loud to everyone on the bus and started to cuss out passengers.
Green said Parrish got upset because the door to the bathroom was locked and that Parrish turned to him and started yelling and cussing at him. Green stated Parish then got in his face and pushed him and started to throw punches. Green said he grabbed Parrish and tried to calm him down, but it was not helping and had to punch him back to defend himself. He added once that Parrish realized deputies had been called, he calmed down.
Hawkins could smell alcohol on Parrish as she handcuffed him and placed him in the back of her patrol car and took him to jail where he was cited for disorderly conduct.
