The Yellow Buses driver, who has not been named, has been praised after he jumped from his seat and threw the man, believed to be drunk, onto the street.
In the shocking footage filmed in Bournemouth the thug appears to spit at the bus driver. During the exchange the man slurs: “There’s a bit of DNA” as he tries to make he was to a seat.

As the thug slurs: “All over your face” the driver grapples him round the neck before dragging him towards the doors of the vehicle.
The driver shouts as he drags the man off the bus, saying: “I don’t take no s*** from you, you swear or anything, you stay over there.”
As the driver returns to the bus he apologises to his passengers whilst the thug is left on the pavement after being flung to the floor by the driver.
Thousands of online viewers have praised the bus driver who has been hailed as a “legend” for his actions.
One online viewer said: “That bus driver is a legend. He stood up for what was right.
“He has my utmost respect and I would like to shake his hand. He showed self control, when many of us most probably wouldn't have, to protect himself and his passengers.”

“Well done to that bus driver. He kept his cool and did what needing doing,” another commented. “The bus company should be grateful to have such a good man driving for them.”
Dorset Police have launched an investigation into the incident but no arrests have been made.
Paul Wren, commercial director of Yellow Buses, added: “The incident was reported to the police and we have launched our own internal investigation.
“It would therefore not be appropriate for us to comment further at this time.”
