LAS VEGAS (AP) — Security video recorded a woman shoving a 74-year-old man with a walker off a public transit bus in Las Vegas after he asked her to be nice to other passengers, and she's facing a murder charge after the man died, according to court documents.

Serge Fournier hit his head on a sidewalk in the March 21 incident, police said, and the Clark County coroner ruled his death on April 23 a homicide resulting from his injuries.

Cadesha Michelle Bishop was arrested Monday on a murder warrant and was assigned a public defense attorney during her first court appearance on Tuesday. A Clark County public defender's official did not immediately respond Thursday to messages.

A judge ordered Bishop, 25, held on $100,000 bail pending a preliminary hearing of evidence May 21.

A police report says Fournier was moving up the aisle of the Regional Transportation Commission bus when he asked a woman who had been cursing at other people to be nicer to passengers.

Bishop was accused of shoving Fournier out the door "with enough force that he never touched any of the steps" before hitting his head about 8 feet (2.4 meters) from the bus.

Court records show that Bishop was convicted twice, in 2014 and 2015, of misdemeanor domestic battery charges.

She definitely does have something wrong with her and she was convicted twice in the past and still roaming the streets and acting out and this poor gentleman was being a concerned citizen that resulted in his death by this person. Maybe when people are arrested for violent acts in the past they should be looked at more and not let out so fast in the general population of normal citizens.


The woman who shoved the elderly man off the bus is a classic example of the mentally disturbed allowed to mingle with the normal people in America today. IMO, the situation of allowing these people is the reason for most of the violence we face today including the senseless shootings across the nation. we must demand the resurrection of State and Federal mental health facilities as they existed pre the Reagan years as POTUS to "save money"! Currently our prisons house those who need mental health treatments. The American people are the ones who pay for the negligence of mental health care. [angry]
