A teenager bit a bus driver when he took his bus pass off him, a court heard.
Godfrey Bristol, of Holme Park Court in Berry Brow, pleaded guilty to assault.
Kirklees magistrates heard that the 18-year-old had anger management issues.
The offence happened on May 27 when the teenager got on the bus on Fairhill Road in Berry Brow.
Elizabeth Wright, prosecuting, said that Bristol showed his bus pass to driver Robert Landin.
The bus pass was expired but Bristol used it to prove his age so that he could get a reduced fare.
Mr Landin wanted to see the pass again but Bristol refused and the driver took it from him.
Magistrates heard that Bristol became aggressive and Mr Landin took his glasses off as he feared being hit.
Miss Wright said: “Mr Bristol snatched the glasses from him and goes down the bus. Mr Landin left his cab and followed him and the confrontation continued.
“Mr Bristol grabbed Mr Landin’s hand and bit him.”
The driver was left with a mark to his hand as a result of the attack.
Passengers described Bristol acting aggressively towards Mr Landin and the incident was caught on CCTV.
In June Bristol was fined by magistrates after spitting in the hair of a neighbour.
Bob Carr, mitigating, said that his client was concerned when Mr Landin took his bus pass off him because his bank card was also in the plastic cover.
He told magistrates: “The bus driver took his glasses off and he took that as a threat. In an endeavour to release his grip on the bus pass he (Bristol) foolishly bit his hand.
“He clearly has anger management issues.”
Magistrates ordered a full report on Bristol before his sentencing on August 18.
Unconditional bail was granted.
