Initial reports that a Metro-North passenger assaulted the train's conductor turned out to be false, MTA officials said on Friday.

"It was overblown and not serious," said Meredith Daniels, a spokesman at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Daniels said MTA police were dispatched to Larchmont at 10:36 p.m. on Wednesday after inaccurate reports of "a customer assaulting the conductor" on the 10:04 p.m. train from Stamford, Conn.

"Larchmont police arrived to keep parties separate on platform," Daniels said.

MTA police placed the individual on the next southbound commuter train, Daniels said.

"This was a verbal dispute. No physical altercation," Daniels said.
