BEYOND BERGEN: A man who Port Authority police chased down for swiping a soda from a bus station newsstand was carrying a loaded gun and a pistol-grip knife, they said.

Two plainclothes officers heard the shouts of a stand worker and spotted 37-year-old Vincent Pierce of the Bronx with the soda in his hand in the midtown Manhattan Port Authority bus terminal around 11 a.m. yesterday, the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo said.

Pierce tried to run but was quickly grabbed, he said.

The officers found him carrying the loaded .45-caliber pistol and the knife, Pentangelo said.

The 5-foot-10-inch, 160-pound Pierce was charged with resisting arrest, petty larceny and weapons possession.
