HOUSTON — A woman who didn’t want to put on a mask before boarding a METRO bus in Houston Friday, got mad and kicked out a window. 

A witness said she also threw a bag of chips at the driver. 

No one was hurt.

METRO confirmed the incident happened around 12:30 p.m. on a northside bus route.

The broken glass forced the driver to call for another bus to pick up the passengers.

Governor Greg Abbott’s decision to lift the statewide mask mandate doesn’t apply to public transportation

It also doesn't apply to private businesses.

In Galveston, an arrest warrant was issued Friday for a woman who refused to leave a bank when the manager told her she needed a mask.

Terry Wright, 65, ignored a police officer's order to leave. 

After a struggle, she was handcuffed and charged with criminal trespass and resisting arrest.
