Former Lincoln Bus Driver Takes His Story To TV News Program

LINCOLN -- Fired StarTran bus driver Troy Fischer has gone on the TV show "Inside Edition" to say he's not the horrible person people perceive him to be. Also interviewed was Fischer's attorney, Sean Reagan, who said Fischer, a decorated veteran, should not be judged on a one minute video clip. Bus surveillance video shows Fischer punching passenger Torrance Rose 15 times then throwing him off the bus into a busy street near 84th and "O" on March 23. Fischer was fired and charged with misdemeanor assault. However, the City of Lincoln dismissed the charge...instead turning the case over to Lancaster County, which is now handling the investigation.
