That alone was grounds for firing him after the December rear-end crash that injured 17, the Globe reports, adding authorities were also not too thrilled to find he had a loaded gun in his backpack at the time.
Oh, Reddit: There's an entire Reddit "subreddit" dedicated to drawing subway maps of cities, only instead of connecting subway stations, they connect Subway sandwich shops. Because, of course.
H/t Welcome to Dot.
The MBTA reports it's solved those mysterious "propulsion" problems on the Mattapan Line and that trolley service resumes first thing in the morning.
The MBTA reports "moderate" delays on the Red Line due to a train that came to an early end at Park Street. Spinfire shows us the crowd around 5:30 p.m. at Kendall - after a full train had just pulled out.
The Red Line had two dead trains (at Park and North Quincy) and signal problems at Alewife during the morning rush.
The Green Line had signal problems at Kenmore.
The MBTA announced tonight:
Shuttle buses replacing service between Ashmont & Mattapan Stations until further notice due to required vehicle maintenance related to the winter weather:
A Blue Line train died at Maverick Square, but the MBTA says it's been disposed of and now everything's hunky dory.
The MBTA reports the elevators and escalators at Orange Line stations from Jackson Square to Forest Hills stopped running tonight. Losing power will do that, but the good news is the power's back on.
UPDATE: After hauling away one train carcass, the T reported another train, headed inbound, died at South Station.
The work week got off to its usual start on the Red Line when a train took its last breaths at Central, and now riders are stuck in what the MBTA calls "moderate" delays. It's no better in the other direction: Read more.
The MBTA reports "moderate" delays on the Orange Line due to the deceased train at Roxbury Crossing.

A Red Line train breathed its last at JFK/UMass, but the MBTA reports the train has gone to that repair shed in the sky and now everything's back to normal.
Karen Adams shows us the Quincicles now hanging from the ceiling above the platform at the Quincy Center Red Line station:
This icicle situation inside (yes, inside) the Quincy Center MBTA is a total disgrace. It’s been like this since the morning commute. Hope my fellow residents get home safely without taking one of these to the skull (or slipping on the ice-coated platform)
The MBTA promises to investigate.
Harry Grillo posts photos of the B Line trolley with a broken pantograph gumming up the works at Sutherland Road tonight. The MBTA reports "moderate" delays.
Marc Ebuña shows us an inbound Red Line train that was barely able to get out of Harvard Square because the incline past the station proved just too tough. The train finally realized that no matter how many times it muttered "I think I can, I think I can," it really couldn't and had to be taken out on a stretcher at Central Square. And now the MBTA is reporting "moderate" delays.
