Transit Police say a Quincy woman learned Saturday it's also against the law to assault people selling food inside MBTA stations
Transit Police report Tina Drouin, 49, of Quincy, grew upset around 2 p.m. when she ordered a steak and cheese sub at the Nathan's Famous stand in the Quincy Center Red Line stop, because the worker allegedly loaded up her steak and cheese sub with too much "shit," specifically, too many pickles.
Police say that when the worker refused to refund Drouin's money, Drouin punched the worker in the face, then "pushed two large very heavy jars filled with pickles and pickle juice into the sub maker knocking her to the floor and shattering the jars."
Drouin, police say, then ran out of the station. But the worker decided she wasn't going to put up with Drouin's alleged shit and so got up and ran after her. Police say the worker caught up with Drouin on Hancock Street near City Hall and held her until Transit and Quincy police arrived. Police had to summon an ambulance to transport Drouin to a local hospital after she complained of neck pain.

I guess he can't afford a winter hat or is hiding from someone. There was a cut out for his face with a Saran Wrap covering it.
