SEATTLE (WKOW) -- Metro Transit in Seattle is standing by its driver who asked a woman with a baby to get off a bus because of a stinky diaper.
Metro officials have apologized for the driver's actions, but say the nine-year veteran will not be disciplined.
Metro says the driver did not violate company policy when she acted for the comfort of other passengers.
The mother, Nichole Hakimian, says an apology is not enough and has threatened to sue.
Hakimian was taking her 1-year-old son to a clinic Tuesday when his diarrhea became an odor issue. She says the driver insisted that she get off the bus.
Hakimian says she found a place to change the baby and caught another bus to the clinic where doctors diagnosed her son with a stomach bug.
