Student Arrested After Bus Fracas In Dobbs Ferry

DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – Edgar Medina Jr., a Yonkers resident and day student at St. Christopher’s, was arrested Sept. 12 after a bus driver told police Medina argued with him and punched a rear-view mirror.

Medina boarded the southbound bus about 3:30 p.m. and immediately began arguing with the driver, a 39-year-old man, police said. The driver told police the argument stemmed from an incident that occurred on the bus the day before. The bus driver pulled over immediately after Medina punched and shattered the mirror, and he then exited the bus, police said. Police found Medina at the infirmary at St. Christopher’s, where he was having his hand bandaged after it was cut on the mirror.

Medina was charged with fourth degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, and is set to appear in court Sept. 20.
