Transit Police report arresting Rosba Taylor, 25, of Lynn, on gun charges Tuesday afternoon after he allegedly tried to get onto the T at Haymarket without paying.
Police say officers initially started to write out a ticket for fare jumping around 5:30 p.m. but moved to arrest him after he provided two fake names, on a charge of failing to identify himself.
As the officers attempted to take control of Taylor he began to shift his body away from the officers.
Police say that might have been because Taylor had a .22-caliber handgun in his waistband with one round in the chamber.
On booking him on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition, police add, officers found some crack on him as well, which was good for an additional drug charge.
In June, police from Plymouth to Lynn went on a manhunt for Taylor on a report he had menaced his ex-girlfriend, then kidnapped their three-year-old son and drove him back to Lynn. At the time, Taylor's family told WBZ that the ex was just making up stories again and that Taylor didn't have a gun with him.
