It’s one thing for you to operate a train, without the proper training, but putting the entire thing on Instagram? That’s a whole other level.
Subway driver Terrell Harris was recently fired form his job when he thought it would be fun to reportedly let his girlfriend Dominique Belgrave take control of the D train for several stops in Brooklyn.
There is no denying it happened because sis documented the entire thing on Instagram before going private. She captioned her stories with the following:
Yes, this is me operating the train right now
Conducting The D u hurdddd
Sharing multiple videos on her account.
According to the NY Post:
As the train zips toward Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue, Harris explains that the marker showing where operators must stop is hard to see from the cab, and Belgrave echoes the complaint.
“Y’all ain’t put the stickers in a visible place!” she exclaims.
A third clip shows her entering the public section of the car saying, “Back inside I go.”
Footage of the transit-loving temptress driving the motorman wild went viral among MTA workers over the weekend, and eventually caught the eye of a supervisor — who reported them to the NYPD, police said.
But the rule-breaking ride may be the third rail of career moves.
Interim Transit President Craig Cipriano said Harris will be disciplined. The 32-year-old, 11th-year MTA employee earned $117,486 in 2020, according to SeeThroughNY.
“This video is beyond egregious showing a train operator who betrayed the trust of New Yorkers while creating a dangerous condition,” Cipriano said in a statement.
“I want to assure customers that the operator involved has been removed from service and will no longer be allowed to control a train.”
Domonique has been responding to the backlash of the posts that went viral, sharing on Facebook that she takes full accountability for her actions, and that she feels really bad.
She goes on to say that other MTA employees were to be blamed for spreading the videos and social posts claiming that they did not really care about her boyfriend’s job.
