A Racine man was arrested Thursday after a man ordered by a court not to ride the bus had gotten onto a Belle Urban System vehicle.
Billy McCullar, 59, is charged with bail jumping for this incident. He has an open case of fourth-degree sexual assault, where a female bus driver is the victim.
A Racine police officer saw a city bus on Main Street in Racine, with the back sign flashing to call 911. Dispatch had already been alerted to the problem, according to court records.
The female bus driver – not the same one in McCullar’s open case – told officers McCullar boarded the bus at Main and Sixth streets and sat in the back. He did not speak with her, she said.
When officers spoke to him, he refused to get off the bus and yelled that he had not done anything wrong. The second time an officer asked him to step off the bus, he complied.
McCullar was arrested for bail jumping, and taken to jail.
