The woman who poured a cup of her own urine on a D.C. Metrobus driver tested positive for PCP after she was arrested, NBC Washington reports.
When 38-year-old Opal L. Brown of Southeast D.C. didn’t show up for her first court date, a judge issued a warrant for her arrest. In court Monday, a judge said drug tests came back positive for PCP, twice.
“On the 31st of August when she was first arraigned, the judge ordered some release conditions and those included drug testing,” Metro spokesman Dan Stessel told NBC.
A woman riding a D.C. Metrobus peed in a cup before throwing it on the driver and later confessed to the crime.
NBC Washington reported that on the night of August 29, Brown was riding the X2 bus. As she was getting off at Benning Road and Minnesota Avenue the bus driver told her to have a nice day.
Brown reached around the driver’s plastic shield, dumped a to-go cup full of urine on her and ran off the bus. Surveillance footage shows she had peed in the cup in the back, near other passengers.
“To say bizarre is really an understatement. It’s a vulgar assault,” Metro Transit Police Chief Ron Pavlik told NBC Washington.
NBC’s Adam Tuss tweeted the next morning that the woman turned herself in to transit police.
Brown wrote about the incident in her own words on Facebook.
“I was provoked. I hate Metro,” she told Tuss in an interview. “I’ve been catching Metro for 35 years. They’ve never done s— for me.”
