British police searching for a jogger who knocked a woman into the path of a London bus arrested a man Thursday. London's Metropolitan Police force said the 50-year-old was arrested at a home in the Chelsea area of the city on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. He was later released pending further inquiries. Earlier this week, police released surveillance camera footage of the May 5 incident on Putney Bridge.
