The Bus Thief Who Just Can't Stop

Darius McCollum, 45, of New York, loves transit. He loves it so much, he has a habit of taking New York City subways and buses for a spin, and has been arrested about two dozen times for doing just that.

The arrests started when he was just a teenager, when he took control of an "E" train and drove it to the World Trade Center. On Tuesday, he was caught behind the wheel of a stolen Trailways bus.

"Police officers from the 103rd Precinct stopped the bus as it was heading north on a ramp of the Van Wyck Expressway. Mr. McCollum surrendered without incident, the police said."
