MBTA Transit Police report arresting a woman Sunday afternoon on charges she escalated an argument on a C trolley by smacking one opponent in the back of the head with her umbrella and then smacking another by opening the umbrella up in her face.

The report adds "the umbrella was secured and submitted into evidence," but does not say what the argument was about.
The Globe reports an Allston man was arrested yesterday on charges he held up a Brookline bank barely a half mile from his Allston apartment.
Following the holdup at the Sovereign Bank branch at 487 Harvard St., authorities IDed the suspect as the same big-eared man wanted for holding up a Bank of America branch at 1237 Comm. Ave. in Allston twice over the past month.

Ave. near Harvard Ave. in Allston.
Brookline Police report they will arrest Tyler Grace, of no known address, just as soon as he's arraigned in Maine on similar indecent-assault charges.
Police say Grace, 29, fondled himself in the main Public Library of Brookline branch on Washington Street on Saturday, then finished his act on a woman sitting next to him.

Maybe there's a good reason an MBTA supervisor was blocking a handicap space and the sidewalk while parked on grass along Beacon Street today, but Todd Kirrane, who took the picture, says the driver just seemed to have stopped to do some shopping.
Robert Sonia, involved with a melee with off-duty cops and a stripper last spring, has filed a federal lawsuit against the officers and the town of Brookline, alleging they deprived him of his rights by beating him up.
Sonia, a Lynn resident who was working as a driver for an adult-entertainment company, drove a stripper to a Beacon Street apartment for a bachelor party in March, 2010. When the two got to the address, some sort of fight broke out - Sonia charges cops jumped him, beat him and then wouldn't let an ambulance take him to the hospital.
In June, charges against everybody involved in the fight were dropped. At the time, Sonia's attorney said Sonia felt vindicated and just wanted to put the incident behind him.
In his lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Boston, however, Sonia is asking for unspecified damages for the alleged violation of his Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights.

The US Department of Agriculture says it wants to inject trees up to a half-mile away from where Asian Longhorned Beetles were found last year with imidacloprid, a pesticide that kills not only beetles but bees.
USDA and state and city officials plan a public meeting on the beetles - which were found in six trees on hospital grounds - on April 28, at 7 p.m. at the Faulkner Hospital Auditorium. The current quarantine zone - in which any woody material has to be ground up - extends into Roslindale and Brookline.
Parking is a delicate subject, one that our elected officials like to ignore because changes usually result in anger, as few people are rational when it comes to discussing meters. Last year, Brookline commissioned a parking study and are actually going through with the suggestions. New hours, new prices and new meters come into effect on April 1st, 2011.
Red Sox fans.
Under the current system, a red sox fan, driving to the stadium has a choice. Pay $30 to stick their car in a lot right by the stadium, and deal with the traffic to arrive and leave.... or pay $1.50 to park in Brookline and not deal with traffic.
The choice is obvious.
Fans arrive at 4pm, insert two hours worth of money in the meter ($1.50) and are free to stay as long as they want (well, not overnight).
Meanwhile, those wanting the spaces to hit the restaurants or supermarkets are out of luck. Those cars wont be moving for four or five hours.
Remember, the parking meter was invented to create turnover. 2 hour limits mean the spaces are for customers and not space-hogs.
Police say the victim of the stomping also had to have his broken jaw wired together following the Friday incident on Kent Square, Wicked Local Brookline reports.

Somebody's going around shooting squirrels with a BB gun, Brookline Patch reports.
That would be the lichens named that, not Redcoats. Jef Taylor reports the closest he's spotted them to Boston City Hall is in Brookline - although he posts a photo of some of them from the roof of a building at the Franklin Park Zoo (which, while in Boston, is further away from City Hall).
