NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A fight on the subway isn't a good reason to shut down service, that's how New York City Transit Authority President Andy Byford sees it.

Violence erupted during the Thursday morning rush, when two men argued over a seat aboard a crowded Manhattan bound train. One man sprayed the car with mace.

Byford said while he appreciates what police do, stopping service for 90 minutes wasn't the way to handle the investigation. He said the train where the fight broke out should have been moved to a side track where it would not have held up regular subway traffic.
