Police: Man Fights Taxi Driver, Police Officer on Tremont Street

The following information was supplied by the Boston Police Department. Charges listed do not indicate convictions.

A California man was arrested in the South End on Saturday for allegedly fighting both a taxi driver and a police officer. 

A taxi driver flagged down an officer at about 2:38 a.m. on June 15, claiming that a customer had punched him in the head after he told the man to get out of the cab.

The cab driver identified the suspect as a man who was standing on the corner of Tremont Street and Hanson Street, police said. An officer then approached the suspect and asked him what had happened. Police said the man appeared to be intoxicated. The suspect then asked the officer for a lighter. When the officer asked again what had happened, the suspect turned and walked away.

When the officer followed and attempted to grab the suspect by the arm, the suspect reportedly tried to break free by striking the officer’s forearm and kicking him in the shins, police said.  According to the report, the suspect then threw a punch to the officer’s chest. The officer then took the suspect to the ground, where the two struggled until more officers arrived. read more

Police Seek Woman Who Shoved MBTA Bus Driver

Transit Police are looking for this woman who shoved a bus driver.

On the same day the MBTA launched their “don’t touch a bus driver” campaign, the transit police posted a video showing a woman shoving a driver before exiting a bus.

The MBTA Transit Police in a May 6 post on the police blog are urging the public to contact them if they recognize the woman who is carrying a young child in the video.

 “Take another look contact us if you know her, 617-222-1050, MBTA SeeSay app or anonymously at our text tip line 873873” the post says.

Beginning this week, MBTA buses have posted signage which say “Don’t Touch The Driver” in an effort to prevent attacks on on-duty MBTA employees.
