OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Investigators say a man became irate after being told that he couldn’t get onto a downtown bus.

Last month, EMBARK imposed capacity limits on public buses as a way to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

Earlier this week, officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department say a man became upset when he was the 11th person who tried to get on a downtown bus.

When he was told he couldn’t get on the bus, he “pulled out a hammer and threatened to hit the bus driver,” a post by the police department read.

Several passengers were able to get the suspect off of the bus near N.W. 23rd and Pennsylvania Ave.
