NJ Transit Bus Driver Charged With Lewd Behavior While Driving
A NJ Transit bus who engaged in lewd behavior while behind the wheel in the Lincoln Tunnel has been charged with causing or risking widespread injury or damage.
A passenger recorded driver George Simpson of Newark on video pleasuring himself in the middle of traffic according to WABC TV on June 24.
NJ Transit has fired Simpson and says in a statement he was, "immediately removed from service without pay" when they were made aware of Simpson's "disturbing and grossly irresponsible conduct."
A criminal investigation was started by NJ Transit Police and their investigation resulted in three separate criminal offenses including lewdness and reckless driving.
NJ Transit also offered apologies for Simpson's actions.
