On Sunday, a man was traveling to the zoo on a COTA bus with his family.

Before the man and his family reached their destination, a teenager from Upper Arlington bumped into the bus with his vehicle. The impact cracked the kid’s bumper but from the looks of it, the accident wasn’t too serious.

Evidently, the fender bender was enough to send the man on the bus into a frenzy. He got out of the bus, approached the teenager, robbed him, and then choked him.
