Police were called to a disturbance on a bus in Preston this morning.
The vehicle was just outside the city’s bus station when the driver became concerned about the behaviour of a passenger, halted the vehicle and asked the man to leave.
The passenger refused and the police were alerted at around 10am.
A Lancashire Police spokesman said when officers arrived they asked the man again to get off the bus.
After he refused to comply he resisted arrest, the spokesman added, before he was eventually taken into custody.
