ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The Albuquerque man arrested for attacking a city bus driver remains free on bond.
Michael Fisher, 37, was in court Tuesday on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Bus driver Robert Gallegos was making a stop near San Mateo and Montgomery on Sunday when Fisher allegedly got on and hit him in the face with a rock. Three men who saw the incident held him for police.
Gallegos had a large gash above his right eye that needed 10 stitches.
Fisher's wife said her husband was protecting her. She claims Gallegos has been discriminating against her and would not allow her or her son on the bus.
The driver told police Fisher and his wife had recently been escorted off the bus because they refused to get off.
