Nominee for dumbass of the week: Guy who refused police request to stop holding train turned out to have outstanding warrants

Transit Police report a quadruple bonus when they arrested John Monroe, 32, of Roxbury after he refused a request from an officer to stop holding open the doors of a Red Line train at Quincy Center last night:

Officers proceeded in Monroe's direction, while en route the train attendant announced via the intercom system several times "Please clear the doors". Monroe ignored these requests and continued to stand in between the doors preventing their closure. Officers approached Monroe to ascertain what his issue was and subsequently discovered Monroe had a total 4 outstanding warrants in existence for his arrest. The warrants issued from multiple courts were for several different charges.

Presumed brilliant until proven a dumbass.
