A 15-year-old boy stole a bus, drove it along a public transit route, picked up passengers and collected fares, authorities said Sunday.Now while the media will probably try and blame Grand Theft Auto for putting ideas like this in the head of the kid, we all know that the blame lies squarely with Seinfeld:
"I drove that bus better than most of the LYNX drivers could," the teen, who is too young to drive legally, told a deputy after he was stopped and arrested. "There isn't a scratch on it. I know how to start it, drive it, lower it, raise it."
Davis had previously been charged for a similar bus theft. Details of that case were unavailable Sunday.
Passengers and deputies noted Davis drove the bus at normal speeds and made all the appropriate stops on the route. One passenger, suspicious of the youthful looks of the driver, called 911.
GEORGE: You ran?via WFRV via Digg
KRAMER: No, I jumped on the bus. I told the driver, "I got a toe here, buddy, step on it!"
GEORGE: Holy cow!
KRAMER: Yeah, yeah. Then, all of a sudden, this guy pulls out a gun. Well, I knew any delay is gonna cost her her pinky toe, so I got out of the seat, and I started walking towards him. He says, "Where do you think you're going, Cracker Jack?" I says, "Well, I got a little prize for ya, buddy." [Makes punching moves.] Plow! Plat! Ke-yah! Knocked him out cold.
GEORGE: How could you do that?!
KRAMER: Then, everybody is screaming, because the driver, he's passed out because of all the commotion. The bus is OUT of control. So I grab him by the collar, I take him out of the seat, I get behind the wheel. Now I'm driving the bus.
GEORGE: You're Batman.
KRAMER: Yeah, yeah, I am Batman. Then the mugger, he comes to, and he starts choking me. So I'm fighting him off with one hand and I kept driving the bus with the other. Then, I managed to open up the door, and I kicked him out the door, you know, with my foot, you know, at the next stop.
JERRY: You kept making all the stops?!
KRAMER: Well, people kept ringing the bell!
