NYC transit impostor released from jail after latest arrest in 2010 for stealing a bus

A New York City man who has been arrested 29 times for transit crimes has been released from prison after his most recent sentence.

Darius McCollum says he was released Tuesday, after pleading guilty earlier this year to stealing a Trailways bus in 2010. He was caught behind the wheel on the highway leading to Kennedy International Airport.

McCollum's lawyer says his problems are the result of uncontrolled impulses. Both prosecutors and his lawyer say it's a byproduct of what was until recently called Asperger's syndrome but is now considered an autism spectrum disorder.

McCollum has volunteered to undergo therapy and to break the cycle. He was paroled from his 2 ½ to 5 year sentence.

McCollum was 15 when he piloted a subway train six stops without anyone noticing.
