Vladimir was a passenger on the bus Saturday afternoon and recorded the woman's tirade.

"Some people were scared, especially the elderly people," Vladimir said.

The woman is seen on video telling immigrants to go back to their country and asking them if they "had their papers" to live in the United States.

At one point, the angry passenger realized Vladimir was recording.

"She tried to knock the phone out my hand and she started choking me," Vladimir told PIX11 News.

The driver pulled over the bus in Orangetown near Route 340. Police arrested the woman after she became disorderly outside the bus.

At the time, police were not aware of the video from inside the bus. Their investigation is ongoing.
