A woman has been arrested in New York after hijacking a bus when she was told to stop smoking and taking it on a joy ride through the city.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) said the driver asked her to put out the cigarette as the M-101 bus as it travelled through Harlem on Tuesday morning.
