A Bronx teenager was arrested Tuesday after allegedly assaulting a city bus driver.

The incident happened Tuesday evening on a Bx9 bus on East Fordham Road and Third Avenue.

The Transport Workers Union says Marlene Bien-Aime, 43, refused to let 17-year-old Steangeli Medina get on the bus with her dog.

Officials say Medina dragged the driver off the bus and began punching and kicking her.

Police say they arrested Medina on assault and menacing charges.

Bien-Aime, seen above, was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital with a black eye and head and chest injuries.
