The T-shirt vendor identified as Lance Orton who first alerted police to the smoking Nissan Pathfinder that caused a massive scare in Times Square last night, gets surrounded by a phalanx of cameras and journalists as he leaves Times Square this morning on his way home to get some rest after a very long day.

"When you see something, say something," he replied, before shutting the taxi door behind him.
"Oh that's a good quote," a reporter remarks off camera, obviously pleased with receiving such a great soundbite, one that has now been reported in almost every news report. Watch the video below...
