The 84 year old was incensed to see a 17 year old rest his feet on an opposite seat and squirted pepper spray at the teen.

The bus had to be stopped and the teen needed medical treatment.

The police say although putting your feet on a seat is rude, it’s not an offence. But unjustified use of pepper spray is.
