Mace plus Muni equals mayhem

Another dose of Muni mayhem:

A peeved female passenger Maced a fellow passenger and pushed her mother after forcing her way through a crowded Muni bus Oct. 1.

It happened around 2:40 p.m. on California Street, police said.

The victim did nothing to deserve the attack, police said. The suspect pushed through the crowds to get to the back, where the victim and her mother were standing. The loon then pushed the victim’s mother and demanded that the victim apologize to her, cops said.

The victim apologized to avoid a confrontation, but apparently that wasn’t enough for the pompous passenger. The suspect sprayed Mace into the victim’s face a short time later, police said.

Cops were called and they found the Mace and the suspect, who fled but was later caught and arrested, police said. The victim positively identified her, police said.
