The Lincoln StarTran bus driver seen on video last year punching a passenger several times was sentenced Thursday to a year's probation and 100 hours of community service.

Troy Fischer was found guilty of third-degree assault after surveillance video showed him punching Torrance Rose 17 times before forcing him off the bus last March.

"He just lost it and that's how everything ended," Rose said.

Fischer was fired by StarTran.
