A BUS driver threatened to call the police on a woman for bringing two chicken nuggets on board, it was reported last night.
Ronke Esther told how the driver stopped the Dublin bus and demanded she get off for snacking on the McDonald’s treat.

She said Tuesday night’s clash left her feeling “picked on and insulted” – especially as another passenger was free to drink coffee.
Ronke, who’s in her 20’s, told Dublin Live: “I went to McDonald’s and bought chicken nuggets – I had three remaining as I was getting on the bus.
“[The driver] said, ‘Oh you can’t have that’, so I said OK and tried to eat them quickly.
“He then said, ‘You can’t do that’ so I said OK and put the two in my bag – but then he said I couldn’t do that either, saying it’s to do with hygiene.
“He told me to get off the bus.
“I just shoved [the nuggets] in my bag and went upstairs, but he stopped the engine and followed me.”
They then rowed for 15 minutes before the raging driver threatened to call the police.
But fellow passengers intervened to defend the young woman.
They told the driver they had often ate takeaways on the bus without issue – and he eventually backed down and started the bus again.
Consuming food or drink is not allowed on board Dublin busses.
