A 47-year-old man is behind bars today after he allegedly pulled a knife on a Muni driver and stabbed him in the leg.

Officer Gordon Shyy says the incident happened yesterday at about 7:08 p.m. on the corner of Eddy and Taylor streets when a passenger told the bus driver that there was a guy with a knife on board. The Muni driver stopped the bus and called the cops.

While they were waiting for police, the man came up to the bus driver, pulled out a knife, and demanded the bus keep moving.

The driver, understandably afraid, tried to kick the man off the bus, fearing for his safety. As he was escorting him off, the man stabbed the 52-year-old Muni driver in the leg, Shyy says.

The cops arrived just in time to arrest the knife-wielding man who has been identified as David Choy, a San Francisco resident Choy was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats, probation violation, multiple local warrants, and resisting arrest.

  • 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.'"
