Eugene police said they have caught the woman who was caught on camera attacking a Eugene bus driver.

Investigators asked for the public's help identifying the woman who was shown in surveillance images punching the Lane Transit District bus driver in the face Oct. 4.

Eugene police said they received tips that led them to Tamela Trice, 21. She is now facing charges of assault and interfering with public transportation.

Investigators said the incident began when Trice boarded the bus, sat in the back and put her feet up on the seat in front of her.

The driver told her to take them down, but said she then got belligerent. The driver pulled the bus over and told her to leave.

Police said right before exiting the bus, she turned and punched him in the face.
