Bus Driver Fined for Extra Rider Says it Was a Blow-up Doll

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A British party bus driver said the extra passenger that led to him being fined $688.86 was a blow-up doll, not an actual human.


Bash Ali, 41, of Oldham, England, said he was driving the Mercedes minibus from Oldham into a trendy section of nearby Manchester when he was pulled over and cited for using a motor vehicle on a road when the load or passengers were likely to cause danger when police said he was carrying nine people, more than his allowed eight.

Prosecutor Paul Scott said police were confident the bus was occupied by nine humans when it was pulled over March 30."


I don`t want to bash Bash Ali, but I think he`s full of crap. He says he pleaded guilty to carrying nine passengers, because he couldn`t afford a lawyer.

I doubt there was a blow-up doll in the bus, why would Ali want to creep out his passengers?

However there is a chance that Ali mistook a twerked-out Miley Cyrus for a blow-up doll. Dude just pay the fine, and be thankful you have a job.
