HOUSTON – Cell phone video of an apparently pregnant 19-year-old woman in an all-out brawl with two other women on a Houston METRO bus has surfaced on the Internet. And police said this is not the only fight they have had to deal with on buses.

The video shows 19-year-old Teannia Miller engaged with 42-year-old Regina Banks and her 15-year-old daughter on a METRO bus at about 3 p.m. on Thursday in the 8600 block of South Braeswood near South Gessner.

The first part of the fight happens at the back of the bus with the three women throwing punches. Officials said the man seen in the video actually helped calm the situation down, but minutes later, the fight began again.

This time, Miller is the aggressor as the other two fight back.

In the video, the bus driver can be seen standing outside, calling METRO police. However, when police asked if anyone had caught the assault on video, no one said anything. Instead, days later, the fight ended up on YouTube.

“I asked if anyone called 911?” said Tom Lambert, interim president of METRO. He said no one had made any calls, but he has a message for the public. “If you see something, say something.”

An ambulance was not called to the scene after the incident, but the women were given citations for fighting. None of the parties involved wanted to file assault charges.
