It is not the first time an incident like this has happened. Cadesha Bishop, 25, was charged with pushing a 74-year-old man off a bus to his death in Las Vegas last April.
On March 21, security video caught Bishop shoving Serge Fournier off a public transit bus in Las Vegas after he asked her to be nice to other passengers.

Fournier hit his head on a sidewalk, and the Clark County coroner ruled his death on April 23 a homicide resulting from his injuries.
Bishop was arrested on May 6 on a murder warrant.
In police documents Bishop is accused of shoving Fournier out the door ‘with enough force that he never touched any of the steps’ before hitting his head about eight feet from the bus.
According to the arrest report, witnesses saw her walking away from the bus without offering Fournier help, grabbing her son’s hand and leading him away.
In the CCTV clip taken from the bus’ security cameras, Bishop can be seen talking to Fournier as he walked past carrying a walker and heading towards the door.
