Any veteran rider of the NYC Subway has come across the occasional idiot ranting on about all sorts of topics. Unfortunately riders on a Brooklyn-bound train not only had to deal with such a person but the melee they caused which led to arrests. Here is more via CBS2 New York:
Five people were arrested, and one person was injured, after a man began ranting and got into a confrontation with other passengers on a subway train this week.
As 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said the man on the Brooklyn-bound D Train was ranting at people and pushing them in the Thursday night incident.
Others became involved, and the emergency brake was pulled just past the Grant Street station, the MTA said.
One person was injured in the melee, the MTA said.
Five people were ultimately arrested at the DeKalb Avenue station, the MTA said. Police have not indicated why they were taken into custody.
I have to admit that I am curious as to what led to so many people being taken into custody. Hopefully the reasons behind that come out in the coming days.
