Faneuil Hall bucket drummer charged with sucker punching man into unconsciousness at Forest Hills
Joshua Rodriguez, familiar to visitors at Faneuil Hall for playing what he calls "junkyard jazz" on old buckets, will face charges for allegedly punching a man out at the Orange Line station on June 16.
Rodriguez, 21, was arrested by State Police on an unrelated charge elsewhere. If there is time left after he is arraigned for that, he will be transported to West Roxbury District Court for arraignment on the Forest Hills charge, an MBTA spokesman said today.
In the video, posted earlier this year, Rodriguez said he only works Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at the tourist destination. The rest of the week, he said, "I just sit at home, I play video games and I smoke a lot of weed." Rodriguez, who said he's been drumming outside since sixth grade, said he makes enough he could buy a BMW his freshman year in high school.
