NEW YORK (AP) - A 50-year-old man who has been arrested three dozen times for crimes that include piloting a subway train, stealing a bus and donning uniforms to pose as a conductor is being held without bail after his latest arrest.

Darius McCollum has been diagnosed with what was until recently called Asperger’s syndrome but is now considered an autism spectrum disorder. He pleaded not guilty Friday to charges that he stole a bus from the nation’s busiest depot, the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan.

His attorney, Sally Butler, says McCollum is about to lose his housing because he can’t get a job and can’t pay his rent. She says he has tried to get a job but no one will hire him because of his history.
