Poor old loudmouth.

News site Gawker reported witnesses said that Christie was kicked off an Amtrak train's quiet car traveling to New York early Sunday morning. The Christie campaign says he left the car voluntarily.

One passenger told the site that the Republican presidential candidate "got on last minute yelling at his two secret service agents." He was frustrated over a seat mix-up, according to Gawker, and he "immediately started making phone calls on the quiet car."

Passenger Alexander Mann overheard Christie saying "this is frickin' ridiculous" and "seriously?" over the phone.
I am in no way a Christie fan, but I have serious doubts about the truth of this report.

I tend to agree. The CNN report I read pointed out that the governor does not have 'secret service' protection (which the one witness claimed), while another passenger sitting across from Governor Christie said that, while he did not realize he was in the 'quiet' car, he did not raise a ruckus was informed of his being in said car, or that he was talking loud, etc.
