Transit Police report arresting a man watching a movie and fiddling with his Playstation on the TV he plugged in on the inbound platform at Harvard around 4:20 p.m. on Tuesday - not for his unique way of wiling away the time underground but because he was wanted on charges of attacking somebody in Roxbury.
Police say Tykell Jones, 22, of Cambridge, didn't want to hear from cops that the inbound platform of a busy Red Line station was not the best place to set up an entertainment center and that he should mosey on. While talking to him, officers discovered he was wanted on a warrant out of Roxbury Municipal Court on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery:
Jones was placed into custody and transported, along with his entertainment set up, to TPD-HQ for the arrest booking process.
Police did not specify the size of his TV, but it looked pretty big.
