Transit Police report arresting an Everett man who got too angry to control himself when a T employee insisted he pay his fare at the Massachusetts Avenue stop on the Orange Line Thursday night.
Police say Peter Cuesta, 28, first demanded a worker "badge" him into the station around 11:50 p.m. and when she refused, he cursed her and simply busted his way through a fare gate.
At this time the MBTA employee requested Cuesta leave the station. Cuesta refused and made his way to the platform to await the arrival of an Orange Line train. As the train arrived and came to a stop Cuesta, with a closed fist, punched the first door window of the head car causing it to spider web crack. Cuesta then entered the train car.
And then sat there until Transit Police officers arrived to arrest him on a charge of malicious destruction of property - and to issue him a ticket for fare evasion.
