Man claims he was beaten after confrontation with pot smokers on Dallas train

A man in Dallas said he was beaten by a group of men and women after telling them to stop smoking marijuana on the train.

Kennan Jones told KTVT-TV he was happy to be alive after surviving the attack that was captured on a passenger's smartphone.

"Everything just went from 0 to 100," Jones said.

The video posted to social media by "littmobtv" captures the moment Jones was attacked.

The fight seems to drag on for some time before spilling out onto a train platform in Deep Ellum.

One of the attackers pulls out a skateboard at one point, smacking Jones with the board.

That is when Jones said he blacked out.

"I actually said, 'Okay, okay, y'all win,'" Jones said.

Jones said as mad as he is with the people who beat him, he's also irritated the train's driver did nothing to stop the situation.

"To me, they saw enough to be, to stop that moment and say, 'We're not going nowhere, police come,'" Jones said.

DART said a dispatcher saw the fight and called police, who showed up within 10 minutes.

"I'm so sorry it happened to him, and I apologize for that," DART spokesman Mark Ball said.

Ball said it's unclear if the DART driver saw the fight. They are investigating the matter.
