Gnarly: Now Red Line trains need warnings against hanging 10

Gnarly alleged surfer dude Transit Police say a South Boston man was charged with disorderly conduct Friday after officers discovered him "train surfing" from the back of an inbound Red Line train in Quincy.

Police say they found Justin Green, 29, hanging onto the top roof rail from the rear of the train, as it was pulling out of North Quincy around 5:30 p.m. A witness then told police he had seen Green doing the same thing at Wollaston.

Police say Green objected to being charged because he has "a God given right to do anything he wants" and that the only person that would have been harmed was himself.

Police, however, say Green forced a halt in Red Line service while they got him off the train.

They add that in addition to disorderly conduct, Green was packaged into a cruiser for a ride to Transit Police headquarters because he was wanted for evading jury duty.

Innocent, etc.

Sense of entitlement taken to the extreme.

surfing's not a sport, it's a way of life, it's no hobby. It's a way of looking at that train and saying, "Hey bud, let's party!"

I saw someone do this on the 1 bus on Mass Ave. The guy was just hanging on to the back of the bus as it drove across the Harvard Bridge. Then on the Boston side the bus got pulled over and the guy got arrested.

Train Surfing?

How common is this bizarre practice and do we really have laws that outlaw train surfing?

You're the joke

The more swiftly he is allowed to remove himself from the gene poll, the better.
