Transit Police report two men who exchanged punches to the head after an argument over the loud music one was playing on an Orange Line car will both be summonsed into court on assault charges.
Police say the fracas began around 5:10 p.m. on Thursday when some 34-year-old dude cranked up his music, allegedly because he had left his ear buds behind and you know how it is when you've got some tunes you just have to hear.
A fellow female passenger requested he turn the music down as she believed it was too loud. The male rejected his fellow passenger's request. At this time a 67 year old man, also from Boston, confronted the alleged loud music playing man and demanded he turn down the volume. The music player allegedly responded with some expletives and suggested the 67 year old man mind his own business. Not satisfied with that the 67 year old man punched the music player in the mouth. In response the music player administered strikes back hitting the 67 year old in the head. The two were ultimately separated by other passengers.
Police met the rockin' car at Ruggles. The elder pugilist was taken to a local hospital for observation, police say.
