Sameer Jaspal, of Albany, N.Y., was arrested following the attacks in the “kiss-and-ride” area near the station about 11:30 a.m. Monday.

Police officers tried to stop the assault they said Jaspal launched on the bus driver and the security officer. But he ignored their orders to cease.

The cops then got a hold of Jaspal, who bit them, according to authorities.

Jaspal was charged with two counts of assault and battery, assault on law enforcement and obstruction of justice in connection with the incident.

    what a disgusting individual….We don’t behave like that in this country sameer. Biting people and assaulting a bus driver??? get a life bro, it was a tough Monday for everyone.

  • Wild Guess

    Biting behaviour was previously observed in individuals’ use and frequent consumption of bath salts and synthetic Marihuana.

    Legalization and regulation of “illegal” drugs therefore should become the guiding principle in the war on drugs, not helicopters flying below the dead man’s curve.

      Wait, . . . what?

    Dang for a minute there I thought they’d finally arrested the dude who occasionally is wandering around the intersection of Sunrise and Wiehle. Last year I saw said dude standing in the median, screaming and beating a stick on the ground and then brandishing it at cars (yes I called the cops). I mean, I know we all *feel* like that because we have to go to work but most of us don’t actually act it out…

    • Why do you bother?

      Yeah – I first read that as “lunched on the bus driver”.

    For moment there I thought we were at the start of the zombie apocalypse.

    Who can blame the dude? He probably just noticed there are no prayer rooms at Wiehle metro.
