BROOKLYN HEIGHTS — A woman vaping on an A train blew smoke into another rider's face and then threatened to "f--k up" the passenger after she snapped a picture of the scofflaw smoker, authorities said.

The 49-year-old victim was riding a southbound A train near the High Street station at Cadman Plaza East when 21-year-old Aneury Nunez started blowing vape smoke in her face around 3:05 p.m. on July 19, officials said.

The two got into an argument and the woman took a photo of Nunez, police said.

Nunez then tried to grab her phone several times, saying, “I’m gonna take your phone and f--k you up when we get out the train,” according to police.

She was charged with attempted grand larceny, attempted petit larceny, attempted criminal possession of stolen property, menacing, harassment and disorderly conduct, prosecutors said.

Nunez was released without bail and is next scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 26, courts records show. 

Her attorney  was not immediately available for comment.
