Youth pulls on steering wheel of moving Transit bus during altercation

Police have charged a youth in relation to an incident that occurred on a Halifax Transit bus last week in Halifax.

On February 17 at approximately 10:45 p.m. officers responded to a report of a disturbance on a Halifax Transit bus that was stopped on Mountain Road. A group of three youths were arguing with the driver of the transit bus when one of the youths pulled at the steering wheel while the bus was in motion to get the driver to stop. The driver stopped the bus, pulled to the side of the road when it was safe to do so, and asked the youths to exit the bus. The youth who had grabbed the steering wheel then threatened the driver.

Officers arrested one of the youths and released the other two without charges. The 17-year-old youth is scheduled to appear in Halifax provincial youth court at a later date to face charges of:

  • Threats
  • Mischief
  • Failing to obey conditions of a youth court order (x2)
