An Aloha teen was accused today of punching a Tri-Met driver he thought had missed his bus stop, the Washington County Sheriff's Office reported.

Deputies were called about 4:55 p.m. to Southwest 149th Avenue and Farmington Road, where the driver on Route 52 had stopped to let a passenger out the front door, said Sgt. David Thompson, a sheriff's spokesman.

The driver said he had not noticed anyone at the rear door. However, the teen contended the driver had ignored him.

The driver said the teen cursed and threatened him, then hit him in the face. The driver let him off the bus and called police.

Byron L. Bearyman, 17, was arrested at his Aloha apartment, Thompson said. The teen was taken to the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center on accusations of assault and interference with public transportation.
