Round-robin drinker gets two Southie bars in trouble; lawyer tries to blame Andrew Square drug epidemicBy adamg - 1/8/13 - 3:00 pm
A man who started drinking at one Dorchester Avenue bar, continued across the street, then returned to the first wound up getting both hauled before the Boston Licensing Board today for serving an intoxicated patron.
The lawyer for one of the bars, the Aces, 551 Dorchester Ave., tried to sidestep the police citation by citing Andrew Square's problem with drug addicts and methadone clinics. He argued his client is operating under tremendous strains because of that - the druggies keep trying to get in - but acting board Chairman Milton Wright, a retired judge, cut him off as he was reading from a Herald article about the scourge of drugs in Andrew Square.
Casey Shockley shows off his rendition of the Red Line at the Andrew-JFK/UMass tunnel, done a year ago at Karma Tattoo in Somerville. He explains he used to live in the Polish Triangle in Dorchester. See it larger.
Kaitlin Maud, meanwhile, has the entire MBTA map on her arm - both subway and commuter rail (in the photo, north is at the bottom, Green Line on the right):
Once in a while I hear what I believe is a foghorn here in Southie. Any idea where it's coming from?
Tuesday night, MBTA Transit Police had to dispatch officers to Andrew to deal with an angry man threatening other passengers with a plunger. Yesterday, police dispatched officers to the Red Line station to deal with a naked man (photo NSFW if you squint or have a decent sized monitor).
The T had to stop inbound Red Line service from the south shortly after 7 a.m. to try to get this fool off the tracks between Andrew and Broadway. The T reports he managed to flee before police could detain him and ask what the hell he was thinking.
In the MBTA surveillance video below, he appears at around :05 (way, way at the top of the screen) and then hops onto the tracks around :35:
A water main broke around 5 p.m. on Southampton Street, sending water gushing into the Andrew T stop, buckling the road and causing headaches for area motorists and police officers trying to keep them away from Andrew Square.
The Boston Fire Department reports the main was shut off, but now Southampton will have to be dug up and the T will have to re-route buses. The Red Line stop is back open for business.

Boston Police report a worker at Marian Manor was attacked in Andrew Square by a co-worker's gun-wielding muscle - four guys in a car - Saturday night.
According to police, the suspect felt his co-worker had stolen "his weed and money." He was arrested, the four pistol whippers, however, escaped.
District C-6 reports a man was stabbed in the right arm and robbed of $212 around 7:15 p.m. on Thursday at 363 Dorchester St.
The victim told police he was approached by three light-skinned Hispanic males who addressed him in Spanish. One was described as 18, 6'1" and about 220 lbs., with thin sideburns and a goatee and wearing a gray hoodie and a black hat. Another was described as 18, about 5'7" and 180 lbs., in Nike wind pants and a gray sweatshirt. The victim could not describe the third assailant.
The department reports the occupant of the first floor is a recent Boston Fire recruit who was listening to the department radio channel in a classroom at the Moon Island training facility when he heard his own address being called out. He was excused from class and allowed to go home to deal with the damage from all the water used to fight the fire.
The department adds the fire displaced five people and caused an estimated $100,000 in damage.
District C-6 reports that when the help at the Connection, 560 Dorchester Ave., asked a particular guy to leave at closing time on May 8, he pulled out a silver handgun to object. Workers got him outside, where he pulled out his gun and stated "I'll shoot you." Instead, however, he ran down Dorchester Street.
The suspect, described as a white Hispanic male, about 27, 5'6" and 170 lbs, in a black hat and sweatpants and a red hoodie, then fled into Old Colony with the man's backpack, police say.
The subject placed a bag on the counter and threatened the tellers, verbally demanding cash. The teller placed cash into the bag and the subject fled the bank on foot.
