The incident aboard the Northeast Corridor Line train caused a delay of about 20 minutes before it resumed operations.
 
Smith was charged with heroin possession, disorderly conduct and disrupting transportation. A telephone number for him could not be located, and it's not known if he has retained a lawyer.
