(Newser) – New Jersey's transit agency has removed a bus driver for committing a lewd act on the job, and that's putting it nicely: A commuter videotaped 41-year-old George Simpson Jr. masturbating behind the wheel. The video shows him maneuvering the bus through heavy traffic and the Lincoln Tunnel while pleasuring himself on June 24, as 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, an NJ Transit spokesman says the driver was immediately removed from service without pay because of "disturbing and grossly irresponsible conduct."

C'mon guys...give him a break!! He was having a HARD day. And to be fair, he did ask his boss to get off early.
