Lucky she just got off with a head wound.

2002, assault.

When the woman would not give the seat up, Bishop punched her in the head, all the while yelling “I am Dr. Amy Bishop.”

    I’m glad those anger management classes worked so well,

    Take a deep breath. Think positive thoughts. Unclench your teeth.
