Transit Police report arresting an out-of-towner they say used a hockey stick to threaten the driver of a 39 bus at Forest Hills and prevent riders from boarding around 7:45 p.m. on Friday.
Police continue that John Capehart, 50, of Marlborough did not willingly go with them to the penalty box:
Officers attempted to calm Capehart and ascertain what his issue was, however Capehart was not interested in discussing his behavior but rather continued his tumultuous and combative actions. At one point Capehart physically assaulted one of the police officers by striking them in the chest with a closed fist. It took several officers to subdue Capehart and he was placed into custody for various Assault charges and Disorderly Conduct. Capehart was transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
At Transit Police HQ Capehart violently attacked the booking officer by punching him the face with a closed fist. Capehart followed the closed fisted strike by spitting in the officer's face. Capehart was subdued by several officers and will face additional assault charges.
