The MBTA reports Malden Police have arrested Douglas Bergeron, who is charged with causing a chain-reaction collision when he allegedly assaulted a T bus driver in Chelsea last week.

Tristan was among the refugees from Train 806 out of Providence this morning, forced to deboard at 128 after their train was given last rites. He reports passengers were told they could get on an inbound Amtrak train - which promptly left the station before anybody could get on it. Most then got on a train from Canton.

Happens all the time when it rains.
Unfortunately for him, he wasn't able to figure out how to start the vehicle, parked at Silver Line Way in South Boston around 10 p.m. Or at least, that's how police were describing it on their radio as the incident unfolded.
