Father, daughter charged with beating up off-duty cop at Community College on the Orange Line

Transit Police report an off-duty Transit cop who went to investigate why a T worker was ordering two people off an Orange Line train at Community College quickly found himself under attack by a Saugus man and his daughter.

According to police, the train had just pulled into the station around 11:45 p.m. on Friday when the officer heard a T worker yelling "Get off the train, get off the train" at two people in the car in front of his. David Muse, 48, and Madison Muse, 22, began walking down the platform, yelling racial expletives, police say:

At this time the off duty officer began to video record Madison Muse's behavior and offensive racially charged language. Upon noticing this Madison Muse violently attacked the officer and was joined by David Muse. The attack continued onto the platform and eventually was broken up. Madison Muse hurled multiple racial slurs at the off duty officer. At this time the officer, whose phone was dislodged during the attack, attempted to use a call box to contact Transit Police Operations was physically prevented from doing by both Muse' as they punched and kicked the off duty officer several times.

A T worker called 911, which dispatched officers who arrested the pair on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (shod foot), assault and battery and witness intimidation, police say. The elder Muse, police say, was already wanted on a warrant for OUI, second offense, and driving with a suspended license.

Innocent, etc.

They're renaming Community College station "Panic Station".

Silver lining?

Hey, at least the habitual drunk driver was taking public transit instead of driving?

But seriously, hope the officer recovers quickly.

An outbound invocation

O Calliope, let thy grace give me a decent Orange Line commute
Dear Urainia, let thy train make it through without signal adjustments
Fairest Euterpe, let my headphones be loud enough to block out the phones of people who have not headphones
And O powerful David and Madison, let not our paths cross as I try to get up the stairs at Sullivan

Let's hope the father and daughter who physically assaulted the off-duty police officer go to jail for a long time.

Attacking cops and yelling racial slurs sounds like a hate crime to me.

Kinda sad, actually

She looks like a classic case of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.

I doubt that she has had much of a chance to get the kinds of services she would need to grow a brain, given her lovely father and all.

That's harsh and uncalled for

That's harsh and uncalled for, Swirlygrrl. You should honestly be ashamed of yourself or bannedfor posting such a deameaning and hateful post. They screwed up, are obviously jerks and got caught. That's enough. But if someone has F.A.S., who are you to call them out for it and suggest they "need to grow a brain?"

Nice work stooping to their level behind your screen.

Oh really

Notice her picture.

Notice the description.

Notice how her behavior is described.

Notice how I never said that it excuses her behavior BUT if you know ANYTHING about FAS (like, if you had a public health degree or something), you would know that impulse control is an issue.

And screaming racist bullshit and attacking someone is "just screwed up"? Oh really. Most people seem to get through life without that sort of crap. That isn't "just screwed up" - that's BEING SCREWED UP.

Go away Anonymous Troll - and maybe learn something from what you read (and look up a fucking colloquialism for shit's sake) rather than reacting to reality in an impulsive manner.

Well if you're right and she

Well if you're right and she has FAS then that might get her off the hook. If she does actually suffer from this then I feel for her.
