Man Body-Slammed By CTA Bus Driver Prepares To File Lawsuit

South Side man who was seen in a widely-circulated cellphone video being body-slammed to the pavement by a CTA bus driver is telling his side of the story, as his lawyers prepare to file a lawsuit.

Lawrence Madden, 43, said he was on a CTA bus headed south on Western Avenue around 2 a.m. on June 11 and he was just trying to get home to see his father. The driver, he said, stopped the bus near 77th Street to talk to another bus driver.

She said Madden walked injured to his father's home.

His attorneys said they are planning to file a lawsuit against the bus drivers, but also want them to face felony battery charges for attacking Madden.
