A Greyhound bus passenger was upset about a delay in Nashville on July 23rd and was asking staff about being compensated for the delay. 27-year-old employee Jon Quest Parker demanded she step aside and that she would not be getting back on the bus. As she began to record the interaction with her cell phone, Parker became upset and told her she was not allowed to videotape inside the facility as it was against policy. When she refused to stop, Parker called the police, and while waiting for officers to arrive, he walked past the victim in what is described as a “clearly irritated” manner and struck her in the right forearm, purposefully knocking the phone from her hand. He was cited for assault and was booked on that citation this week.
Jon Quest Parker was booked on the citation on August 26th, charged with assault. His next court date is in October.
