The Westchester County district attorney’s office says Adams punched the conductor after she was asked to produce a ticket and failed to do so. Adams allegedly punched the conductor several times in the face and hit her with the pumpkin, causing injuries that required stitched. Adams faces two charges of assault. She is scheduled to appear in Mount Vernon municipal court on Wednesday.
