A wild scene was captured on video and tweeted out by the DC Metropolitan Police Department, showing a woman going berserk, attacking a Greyhound bus with a tire iron before hitting a man with her car.
Mariana Silver, 20, had illegally passed the bus and side-swiped a car, according to WPVI-TV.
*Caution: Strong Language
Her reaction to the incident was to turn violent, smashing the windows and a mirror on the bus first with a bat and then with a tire iron, but that was just the beginning of her tirade.
A man identified as the bus driver dangerously stood in front of the woman’s car as she attempts to leave the scene. With police sirens in the background, she strikes the man, before stopping and getting out to remove him from in front of the vehicle.
The suspect wanted on several charges for the offenses that occurred in the 1800 blk of Bladensburg Rd, NE, on Aug 30th, has been identified as 20-year-old Mariana Silver, of NE DC. Her vehicle- Audi A8 with DC Tags FV 9179. Seen her or the vehicle? Call 202-727-9099/text 50411 pic.twitter.com/gy192UhgVt

Bystanders intervention and beg the man to move, telling him he’s going to get hurt. But the bus driver recklessly places himself in front of the crazed woman’s car again, as he appears to be calling 911.
With police closing in, the woman gets back in the car and hits him a second time. As he jumps on her hood, she speeds off with the driver on the car. The man is then seen tumbling to the road as he falls from the moving car.

Silver was arrested later Friday evening and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, NBC Washington reported.
As crazy as the chaotic scene may have been, the reaction on social media was just as entertaining.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
His commitment to staying on the phone is the best part!

Hopefully by standing there and letting her hit him, added a decade or two to her prison sentence.

He told her she shouldn't be driving after she sideswiped another car and got into it with that driver.
