Texas state trooper Don MacFarlane has been charged with official repression and assault for grabbing and pushing a passenger on an Austin bus. MacFarlane stepped onto the bus to tell the driver the bus was over the crosswalk and making it difficult to see traffic. As he left, someone shouted "Hey, we got places to go, bro." MacFarlane came back on board and confronted the man he thought said that. The man insisted he was talking to someone else, so after staring at him a few seconds. MacFarlane left the bus again. This time someone laughed. MacFarlane got back on the bus, grabbed one of the men, told him to get off the bus and threatened to take him to jail. When the man protested that he hadn't done anything, MacFarlane pushed him and got off the bus again.
