Subway cricket prankster wants charges dropped

An attorney for the notorious “actress” who flung bugs across a packed rush hour train said Tuesday the charges against her client should be dropped.

“We’ve filed a motion to dismiss the case,” lawyer Amy Albert said on behalf of Zaida Pugh, who appeared in Brooklyn Criminal Court wearing an uncharacteristically sedate black wig and glasses.

But prosecutors are taking the skin-crawling offense seriously, and have yet to even offer a plea deal.

The homeless “advocate” made national headlines when she unleashed hordes of crickets and meal worms on the packed D train in August —prompting another commuter to pull the emergency brake and strand the infested car in the middle of the Manhattan Bridge for nearly an hour.

Albert also told the court she’d yet to receive the incriminating reel from prosecutors as the video footage, downloaded to YouTube and viewed by millions, has since been taken down.

Pugh, 21, declined comment as she let court with her family in tow.

She faces up to a year in prison if convicted of the misdemeanor reckless endangerment charges and disorderly conduct charges.

It remained unclear if she had begun the preemptive community service she told press about at her last court appearance, or if she was still “going out of her way to feed the homeless because nobody else will.”

Pugh is scheduled to return to court March 20.
