New York subway driver Terrell Harris was recently fired from his job after he let his untrained girlfriend take control of a D train for several stops in Brooklyn over the weekend.
I’m not sure what made Terrell think this would be a good date night idea.
Reportedly, there are images that show Terrell and his girlfriend, Dominique Belgrave, holding hands over the controls of the subway through the 50th Street, 55th Street, and 62nd Street Stations.
And, of course she documented the experience on her IG Story, which has since been made private.
Yes, this is me operating the train right now.
Conducting The D u hurdddd.
She shared multiple videos on her account.
In one of the videos, Terrell explains that the marker showing where operators must stop is hard to see from the cab, and Dominque agrees and questions the placement of the stickers.
Y’all ain’t put the stickers in a visible place!
Her videos went viral among MTA workers and eventually was seen by a supervisor who reported them to the NYPD.
Terrell Harris was fired, and an investigation is going on to see if any criminal charges are warranted.
See the NBC New York news report below:
According to SeeThroughNY, Terrell earned $117,486 in 2020.
Dominique has been responding to backlash from the incident via her FB page, which is under the name Nicky Kelly.
