The fight lasted about 45 seconds, then Hayes threw some liquid on the driver and left the bus. Gibson is still recovering from the injuries.

"What was in his fingernails when I got scratched and then my eye which was damaged. I still have concerns about that,” said Gibson.

Hayes and Gibson faced each other in court Wednesday morning.

The judge considered many factors, like Hayes’ immaturity, when sentencing him.

"You can't do that. You cannot. And I think that your frustrations and anger come out in that way and I feel badly for you but I think that in time maturity is going to end that in you,” said Judge William Mallory.

Hayes nodded along in court as his attorney fought to get him out of jail and into anger management.

"When you're young, you make dumb decisions,” said Hayes.

Mallory gave the maximum sentence.
