FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

It's disturbing video that's been seen nationwide with people playing what's called "The Knockout Game."

The game involves assaulting random people by hitting them at least once without warning.

That dangerous game has now made it to Mid-Michigan.

Police say the assault of a MTA bus driver last week is the first case of the knock out game they've seen in Flint.

In the knockout game, players look for random victims to attack and videotape. Police say their investigation has lead them to believe that's exactly what happened.

Police have arrested the video taper as well as the young man who allegedly attacked the 60-year-old bus driver. But police are still looking for a third suspect who, they say, also played a role in this case the game.

Flint Police Chief James Tolbert says he's disgusted about the idea of the knock out game happening in Mid-Michigan and police will not tolerate it in Flint.
