Four teens got into an argument with a Green Line operator around 4:45 p.m. at the BU West Station. The MBTA reports one of them threw a soda can at the driver. He missed, but T police nabbed him and now he faces a court appearance for assault with a dangerous weapon, an MBTA spokesman says.
More than 100 Brighton High School students were ordered off two Green Line trolleys this afternoon after somebody pulled emergency brakes on the trains by BU West.
MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said MBTA Transit Police made the decision to clear the trains of high-school students after nobody would own up for the two lunchtime incidents. He adds, "tomorrow, Transit Police Lt. Michael Shea will go to Brighton High School to speak with school administrators about the incidents."
