A 74-year-old man is dead after a woman pushed him off a city bus in downtown Las Vegas — allegedly because he told her to be nicer to other passengers.
Cadesha Bishop, 25, of Las Vegas, was arrested on a warrant Monday andcharged with murder in the death of Serge Fournier, 74, also of Las Vegas, the arrest report says, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
She is being held at the Clark County Detention Center.
On March 21, Fournier was making his way down the aisle with his walker when he asked Bishop, who was there with her young son, “to be nicer to the passengers,” the report says, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
Witnesses told police Bishop was allegedly arguing with other people on the bus and cursing at them, the report says, local station KSNV reports.
As Fournier was approaching the steps to leave the bus, Bishop pushed him “with both hands,” surveillance video shows. She pushed him “with enough force that he never touched any of the steps” on the bus and went airborne, the report says.
