Bui Tuan Lam was among the first people arrested and thrown into the bus. While trapped on the bus, Lam continued to lean out the window to shout slogans demanding the release of Dinh Nhat Uy. Suddenly, a big plainclothes security officer came over to punch him twice on the face. Then four regime-hired security guards dragged him away from the bus window.
