Details

     Officers used oleoresin capsicum (OC) spray, commonly known as "pepper spray," to gain control of a man who created a disturbance inside a Van Galder bus early this morning. Officers were dealing with the would-be passenger outside of the bus when the OC spray was used.
     The bus driver told police the man boarded the bus at the Langdon St. stop, and began yelling, swearing and making threats after being told there were issues with his bus ticket. The driver called for police.
     Despite officers' best efforts to calm the man down, he struggled with them, and threatened to kill police.  He was arrested for disorderly conduct, resisting, and threats to law enforcement.
