BALTIMORE (WJZ) — An MTA driver is behind bars, accused of knifing a passenger on board a bus in Baltimore County.

MTA says the driver got in a fight over bus fare with a passenger on Eastern Avenue in Dundalk.  At some point during the argument, police say 28-year-old Brian Marshall stabbed the passenger.

The 44-year-old victim was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

Marshall finished his route instead of reporting the incident immediately, another violation of MTA policy.

Marshall was taken into custody shortly after.  He’s now being held at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

Marshall is charged with attempted murder and assault, among other charges.

    Mr. Marshall has a nice little criminal record. How in the world was he hired in the first place??

      Just because you’re a criminal, doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to have a job. Maybe he was trying to turn his life around. if you had a criminal record, wouldn’t you want someone to hire you? Think before you type, a-hole.

        I believe you have it backwards.

        Clearly, Mr Marshall was trying to turn the passenger’s life around.

        Riley, it’s time the criminals realize there are consequences for life, for the lifestyle they choose. And I will hire a law abiding American before I hire ANYONE else.

    frist of all the mta drivers shouldn’t even be carrying weapons and if he was assaulted by the passenger he should have just kept driving and notified the mta police thats what they are there for and it would have displayed on the front of the bus that he was in trouble so clearly he tried to be the police and handle the situation on his own so he is wrong and must be accountable for his own action.If is you in that situation you would have felt a certain kinda way to.that man could have losted his life for his inapproiate action somebody need to do something
