YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A driver with a bus full of Harlem church congregants was stopped at the George Washington Bridge after the vehicle rolled through the EZ-Pass lane without a transponder — or license plates, Port Authority police said today.

Mohamed E. Mohamed, 49, of Hollywood, Fla., was arrested and charged with theft of services after authority officers stopped the white-painted 1996 school bus at 7 o’clock last night, the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo said.

A second bus came and collected the congregants for the rest of the ride, he said.
