[아시아경제 영남취재본부 김용우 기자] “Where is the bus going? Hey, you XX!”

A 70-year-old man who was handed over to trial for swearing and assaulting a bus driver while drunk was sentenced to prison.

The 11th Criminal Division of the Daegu District Court (Chief Judge Lee Sang-oh) announced on the 10th that it had sentenced A (72), who was charged with assaulting a driver (violation of the Act on Aggravated Punishment of Specific Crimes, etc.), to one year and six months in prison.

Person A was charged with getting on the bus at the bus stop in front of Daegu Station in Jung-gu, Daegu at 8:18 pm on March 16th and hitting the bus driver, Mr. B, in his 40s, in the head, inflicting a concussion injury that required treatment for two weeks.

Person A, who got on the bus in a drunken state, asked, “Where is the bus going?” and Mr. B answered, “I am going to Beommul-dong,” and he suddenly cursed.

When Mr. B also objected, “If you want to be treated like an adult, do it right.” Mr. A was found to have hit Mr. B’s head hard.

The court said, “The criminal background is poor in that he was drunk and abused, and the degree of assault is not light. The accused has a history of being punished more than 20 times.”

He also explained the reason for the sentencing, saying, “It is a combination of the fact that the victim acknowledges the crime and is reflecting on his mistake, and the victim who agreed to it does not want to be punished.”
