The Warrensville Heights woman charged with attacking an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper was supposed to be in court Monday, but her initial appearance has been pushed back to later in the week. Antoinette Taylor, 26, is accused of fighting with a trooper on board a Greyhound bus, and it was all caught on video. 

The incident happened Thursday on I-71 southbound just outside Columbus.

Zach Baugh recorded the incident. He says Taylor was acting strange before the bus even left the Cleveland station. 

"She began going up and down the aisle of the bus shouting out hallucinations, just kind of awkward things," said Baugh.

The driver called police. When trooper Tressa Winans comes onto the bus, she apparently asks Taylor to get off. That's when Taylor begins attacking her.

"It seemed like she was listening. She got up to the front of the bus and that's when the attack started," said Baugh.

With fists flying, both the trooper and Taylor topple down the stairs of the bus and onto the side of the highway, where the fight continues. For several seconds, Taylor is in complete control. 

Finally, the bus driver and another passenger intervene. It takes both to help the trooper regain control. After just a couple of minutes, back-up arrives. 

Taylor has been charged with felony assault. On Sunday, she was released from jail on bond. 

19 Action News reported Dan DeRoos wanted to ask Taylor what happened, but she wasn't home. 

OSHP officials say Winans is recovering after being treated for scrapes and bruises.
