WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA 9) -- An anonymous Metro bus rider shot a 25-second video on Monday morning on board a westbound D2 bus leaving Dupont Circle.

The anonymous passenger, who posted the video on the web site unsuckdcmetro.blogspot.com, says the bus driver was reading a newspaper for long periods of time, while the bus was both stopped and in motion.

Metro declined to comment about the case, except to say that it's now under investigation, but there were plenty of comments from people at the Dupont Circle D2 bus stop after they were shown the video.

"I wouldn't want my kids to be on this bus because you don't know what can happen,"said Brandon Corbie, who lives in Washington.

But other passengers said the video was unclear, and that it only showed the driver holding a newspaper, not reading it.
