HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A spokeswoman for Metro-North Railroad says a conductor was shoved by a commuter in a fare dispute, prompting police to clear the train of riders.

Spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said the incident occurred at about 10 a.m. Friday on a train near the Westport station. The train was headed to New Haven and commuters were delayed 40 minutes.

She said police from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority responded and local police apprehended a suspect who was handed over to MTA police.

The suspect was booked Friday afternoon, but no other details were immediately available.
