Samouel Saleeb, 28, of Bayonne, was charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing a government function and resisting arrest on Saturday, according to Police Lt. Janine Foy.
Saleeb was arrested at about 3:04 p.m. near the intersection of 45th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard after initially being pulled over for equipment violations, also getting flagged for not being properly licensed, police said.
Foy further explained that once Saleeb was instructed to exit the bus, he refused, yelling obscenities and making threatening gestures towards the officers.
After exiting his bus as it was being impounded and also being instructed to move away from the vicinity of the bus, Saleeb retreated back into the vehicle and attempted to lock himself in the bus, officials said.
Police had to physically remove him from the bus and continued to resist being handcuffed, authorities said. Additionally, Saleeb was released on a summons.
