Man arrested in D-train cricket prank

BROOKLYN —Police arrested a man Friday who allegedly helped Zaida Pugh unleash 600 critters onto a packed D-train, officials said.

Jahkif Wright, 20, was charged with reckless endangerment and obstructing government administration.

Pugh, who turned herself into police Tuesday, posed as a homeless woman on a rush hour Aug. 24 train. She pretended to sell bugs and had a man knock the container of critters out of her hand, flinging crickets and worms all over the train. She was charged with reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct during her Wednesday night arraignment.

Wright is currently awaiting arraignment.
