Transit Police report arresting eight alleged knuckleheads on St. Patrick's Day, all from out of town.
The alleged miscreants include two teens from the Attleboros breaking overhead lights on an inbound Franklin Line train in the morning, a drunken guy from some Maine town with a population of around 2,500 who punched a guy in the face at Broadway station and dudes from Swansea and Bristol, RI who tried to muscle their way to the front of the line for an outbound Providence Line and who, when told to knock it off by a female TPD cop "immediately referred to [her] as a word that begins with a B and word that begins with a C" and then tried pushing her out of the way as well.
Also arrested: A Franklin guy and a bro from Clinton who got into some bare-knuckle brawling when the Franklin guy tried to muscle his way through a South Station crowd and the Franklin guy objected, first verbally and then by tackling him to the ground. Transit Police did not say if they were put in separate cruisers for the ride to booking at TPD headquarters on Southampton Street.
Meanwhile, up at North Station, police restrained a Billerica man who was busy smashing another guy's head into the ground. Keenean Parlin, 21, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon - the ground.
