In a video obtained exclusively by ABC13, Darryl Wayne Dalcourt shouted about having a bomb while riding the bus.
This is not the first time Dalcourt has been under arrest.
ABC13 found Dalcourt has an extensive criminal past. He was arrested 19 times in 12 years.
His mug shots go back to when he was 18. He is now 30 years old.
Since 2005 he has faced a host of charges, including possession of marijuana, theft and even assault on a family member.
In a video taken Wednesday by a METRO bus passenger, Dalcourt is heard on the phone making references to killing a woman.
Passengers say Dalcourt then spoke to the driver who left the bus and that Dalcourt then tried to start the bus and shouted about having a bomb.
He was arrested by METRO police moments later.
"I've never been through nothing like this before. I've seen some crazy, drunk people on the bus before, but never like this. Never nobody saying they bomb, or nothing like that," said METRO passenger Jermaine Comeaux.
Passengers who spoke with ABC13 were upset that the driver left them on board the bus without saying anything.
METRO is now investigating what happened and the driver's actions.
Dalcourt remains behind bars.
