A 30-year-old Saint John man has pleaded guilty in connection with an incident on a passenger bus last week.
On May 1, shortly before 10 p.m. a bus driver was assaulted by a passenger when the bus stopped at a gas station in Saint-Léonard. An employee at the gas station who tried to assist was also assaulted by the passenger.
Kristopher Wentworth was arrested and charged with assault and disturbing the peace. He appeared in Edmundston Provincial Court on May 5 where he pleaded guilty to all of the charges. He has been remanded and will appear in court at a later date for sentencing.
