NJ bus driver accused of behind-the-wheel lewd act

Posted: Updated:

WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey's transit agency has removed a bus driver for committing a lewd act on the job.

A commuter videotaped George Simpson Jr., 41, masturbating behind the wheel.

The video shows him maneuvering the bus through heavy traffic and the Lincoln Tunnel while pleasuring himself on June 24. The bus was traveling from Carteret to New York City.

New Jersey Transit police have charged Simpson with risking injury or damage by removing his hands from the wheel. He's also accused of lewdness and reckless driving.

In a statement, NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. said the driver was immediately removed from service without pay because of "disturbing and grossly irresponsible conduct."

Police didn't list Simpson's address, so he couldn't be located for comment.
