FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (KMOX) – A man is accused of punching a MetroLink security guard in the face during a daylight attack Wednesday morning in Fairview Heights.
Police say some witnesses helped the guard take down the suspect until investigators arrived.
Jeremiah McGee, 38, of East Saint Louis, faces a Class-3 felony charge of aggravated battery.
His bond was set at $30,000.
Fairview Heights police say McGee was asked by the MetroLink guard to stop stepping on the feet of some bus passengers at their local transit station lot.
It was after the guard removed McGee from a Metro bus for disorderly conduct that he began throwing punches.
