CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — MBTA Transit Police said they made an unexpected discovery after an arrest at Alewife Station in Cambridge. Officers first responded to Alewife on a call about an unknown disturbance there. When they arrived, police said they found two people in an argument and talked them down.
They had apparently resolved the issue when a third, unrelated person allegedly started berating the officers "using loud and obscene language."
The man was later identified as Michael Fleming, of Quincy. The officers said they tried to calm the man down, but weren't successful. After being told he would need to leave if he didn't calm down, Fleming allegedly picked up his skateboard and told officers to "Earn your [expletive] paycheck." Officers on the scene eventually arrested Fleming on charges of Disorderly Conduct and Trespassing.
During booking they found Fleming already had several warrants out for his arrest in Quincy, on Assault charges and for two separate restraining order violations. Police have not said when Fleming will be arraigned.
