    Police are searching for a man who sprayed a Metro bus driver with Mace for not picking him up.

    The would-be passenger was waiting - but not at a bus stop - on Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast shortly after midnight Friday. Metro transit police said the man tried to get the bus driver to pick him up where there wasn't a bus stop.

    When the driver refused, the man attacked the driver with Mace.

    The driver didn't suffer any other injuries, but could not continue his route.

    Police have not yet released a description of the man they're looking for.
