Georgia authorities say a commuter bus driver is recovering after being stabbed repeatedly with a pen when he tried to break up a fight between passengers that involved a dispute over a cell phone.

Police say the melee on the Cobb County Transit bus occurred Monday afternoon in Kennesaw, about 25 miles northwest of Atlanta.

The driver went to the back of the bus to keep the quarrel from escalating, and a woman pulled a knife.

Authorities say other passengers were able to get the knife away from the woman, but police say she grabbed a pen from the bus driver's pocket and stabbed him several times.

The bus driver's condition was not immediately known.
