Around 2 p.m. yesterday, people inside the Government Center T stop saw an odd thing: two Transit Police officers walked in, put cuffs on one of the red-shirted T ambassadors and marched him out in the pouring rain to their police car.
"Everyone was stunned," one witness said.
A Transit Police spokesman confirmed the arrest:
Transit Police officers on patrol at the MBTA's Government Center station arrested Ambassador Wilens Magliore, 24, of Boston, by virtue of arrest warrants sought by Boston Police for Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon (shod foot) and Assault to Intimidate. Magliore was transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process. The warrants were NOT related to his role as an Ambassador.
