Muni Passenger Intimidates Bus Driver, Steals Transfers

Stealing bus transfers will only get you so far.

As one man learned on Tuesday afternoon when he brazenly pocketed a pack of Muni transfers and bolted from the bus.

At about 1:30 p.m. the man got onto the Muni in the Mission District, but refused to pay his fare. The bus said that the man appeared a little angry. So the driver, presumably intimidated by the man, just let the man have a free ride, according to police reports.

A few minutes later, the driver stopped the bus to let passengers out.

The angry man walked up to the driver and threatened him, saying it was

taking too long to get him to his destination.

The bus driver didn't respond, so the man grabbed a book of Muni transfers from the driver and got off the bus. The Muni driver called the cops, who saw the suspect at Mission Street and Fair Avenue in the Mission District.  

It wasn't hard to confirm that this was the man they were looking for  -- after a quick search, police found the bus transfers and more.

The man also had drugs on him, which could explain why he was in such a hurry.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
