Metro has fired a bus driver arrested early this month for allegedly displaying a knife during a dispute with another motorist in Southeast Washington.

Dwayne Adamson had been a Metrobus driver for three years. Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein says the driver had been on paid administrative leave since the April 2 incident and was fired Wednesday.

Adamson had been operating the U2 bus route when he was pulled over after an argument with a motorist.

The incident was the latest firing in a string of employee offenses. Last week, Metro fired a bus driver arrested for allegedly soliciting sex from an undercover police officer while driving a bus. A MetroAccess driver was fired this month after being charged with sexually assaulting a customer.
