An MBTA passenger is facing disorderly conduct charges after police say he dropped a chocolate milk container under a bus in Brigham Circle — forcing its evacuation and prompting an investigation for a suspicious package.
Officials didn’t release the man’s name but said he will also face a charge of interfering with public transportation and is set for arraignment this afternoon.
T spokesman Joe Pesaturo said the Route 66 driver told investigators the passenger exited about 9:30 a.m. and dropped the item under the bus. Pesaturo did not say why the item was considered suspicious.
The male passenger was taken into custody at the scene, Pesaturo said.
Boston, Massachusetts…the bluest city of the blue states. With the grossly overpaid police and fire, constant corruption, sky high taxes. All due to a extreme case of political correctness and complete Democratic control of all branches of government.
Sorry, I don’t find the above story funny (most of the comments on the story expressed amusement) because I know the likely costs to the taxpayer are likely to be expensive; police overtime, they probably rolled two or three cop cars and a fire truck. If a “suspicious device” was reported then the bomb squad rolled the big bombproof truck and probably shut down traffic on the SE expressway to take that milk carton to Nut Island to “safely” blow it up.
