Elderly man pushed off, later dies from injuries

Elderly man pushed off, later dies from injuries

On May 14, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department released surveillance video from the confrontation on the bus between Cadesha Bishop and Serge Fournier.

Bishop was reportedly "yelling and cursing" at passengers on the bus when Serge Fournier, 74, told her to "be nice".

Harrowing footage has been released by police showing a 74-year-old man being shoved off a bus so hard he eventually died.

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

Police said when they were called to the scene the man refused help, instead taking himself to hospital later that night.

It began as an argument on a bus, police said.

The Europeans - they're diplomats, after all - blamed the decision on scheduling difficulties. The UAE did not give details about the nature of the sabotage or who was behind it.

He remained in hospital for a month before dying on April 23.

Of Fournier, Taylor told the station he'll "always remember him being a wonderful person".

Trevor Taylor, a neighbour to Mr Fournier, said: "No matter what his age, she should not have done that". On May 3, his family notified detectives of his death, at which point authorities ruled it a homicide.

Cadesha Bishop faces a charge of open murder on an elderly, vulnerable person.

Police say Bishop had been convicted of misdemeanor battery charges twice before the incident with Fournier. She's now behind bars at Clark County Detention Center with bail set at $100,000. She remained in custody on $100,000 bail at the Clark County Detention Center on Wednesday, according to online jail records. A Clark County public defender's official did not immediately respond Thursday to messages.
