Man points BB gun at train operator

A 38-year-old man caused a scare in the 155th station on C line Monday when he pointed a BB gun at a motorman in a train pulling into the stop around 8:15 a.m., police said.

Louis Evans, of Brooklyn, then fled across the tracks with the realistic-looking gun before police arrested him near the station, a spokeswoman said. He was charged with menacing and criminal possession. Service was interrupted for about an hour.
