Shi’dea Lane, the 26-year-old woman who was the recipient of a vicious uppercut during an argument on an Ohio public transit bus last year, was sentenced to three days in jail, The Plain Dealer reports.

Artis Hughes, 59, the bus driver who hit her, was sentenced to the same number of days. Shaker Heights Municipal Court Judge K.J. Montgomery initially sentenced Lane to 30 days in jail, but suspended 27 days of the sentence. She pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge for her role in the Sept. 18 incident in Beachwood, Ohio where she was punched by Artis. Lane was also ordered to pay $250 in fines and take an anger management course.

Hughes pleaded no contest on April 2 to an assault charge for his role in the incident and was found guilty by Montgomery. The judge sentenced him to three years probation and 90 days in jail. The sentenced was reduced to three days. He was also fined $1,000.

Video of the incident instantly went viral on YouTube, generating millions of views. Both Hughes and Lane give different versions of how the fight started. In the video, the two can be seen arguing and heard using profanity towards each other.

Here is more from the Plain Dealer:

Lane’s attorney, Dale Friedland, said Lane was standing up for herself as she was told to do after being a victim of domestic violence.

Lane said Hughes insulted and shocked her, and after running late for work and forgetting her backpack, “I couldn’t take anymore,” she said at her plea.

After lashing out verbally, she moved closer to the driver’s seat. Witnesses and Hughes’ and Lane’s statements to police differ on whether she then touched and spit on him, but she did pay the fare before Hughes punched her.

She no longer rides RTA. A friend drives her to work.

At his sentencing, Hughes’ attorney, Michael Maloney, admitted Hughes overreacted, but said Hughes’ actions were not a knee-jerk reaction to a few words but after a lengthy exchange.

Maloney said Hughes  never had an issue with anger management in the past, and he was never in trouble. Hughes has since begun taking anger-management courses.

Lane no longer uses the bus. A friend drives her to work.
