PHOENIX - A man with a hatchet on a Phoenix city bus was disarmed by the driver and thrown off after making threats.
Phoenix police report that on September 6, 57-year-old Phillip Lehman attempted to board a city bus near 19th Avenue and Thunderbird Road. Lehman had been removed from a bus earlier that day for disorderly conduct.
When the bus driver told Lehman he couldn't board the bus, he reportedly grabbed a hatchet and threatened the driver saying, "I'll show you."
The driver wrestled the hatchet away from Lehman and was able to lock him out of the bus until police arrived.
