Transit Police report officers doing fare-evader duty at Mass. Ave. on the Orange Line yesterday evening quickly became interested in the gentleman who was demanding a customer-service agent let him in for free because "he was an 'Active Duty' member of the US Armed Forces."
Police report Christopher Keefe, 28, of Braintree was not, in fact, an active-duty member of the US Armed Forces. He was, however, wanted on a warrant for assault and battery on an elderly person, which was enough to get him a free ride down to Transit Police HQ for booking.
