NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two Metropolitan Transportation Authority employees were arrested in separate incidents this weekend.

In the first incident at 10:56 p.m. Saturday, MTA signal maintenance worker Anthony Davis, 24, was arrested and charged with burglary in the 9th Police Precinct, which includes the East Village.

Police did not elaborate in a news release, but the New York Post and Daily News reported Davis was caught carrying a toolbox into the Waterfront Spa, 33 First Ave., and trying to break into the business.

The second incident happened at 12:47 p.m. Sunday, when on-duty bus driver Frantz Vancol, 42, was arrested and charged with criminal mischief in the Midtown South Precinct.

Police said Vancol was driving an empty M34 bus down 34th Street when he and a cab driver started cutting each other off and got into an argument, according to the Post report. Vancol hurled an empty Snapple bottle at the rear window of the cab, causing the window to shatter, the newspaper reported.

There was no mention of injuries in the newspaper account.
