Transit Police report officers looking for fare evaders and other ne'er-do-wells at Andrew station yesterday found both in the form of Jeremy Derusha, 31, of Abington, who they say tried piggybacking his way onto the Red Line around 10 a.m.
Officers planned to just write Derusha a ticket for fare evasion, but then arrested him after learning he was wanted on several warrants out of Quincy District Court for assault and battery on a police officer, felony larceny, attempting to commit a crime, disorderly conduct, trespassing and drug possession. He also faces a felony larceny charge out of Brighton District Court, police say.
Derusha once threatened to kill a police officer and allegedly tried attacking his ex-girlfriend after she got a restraining order against him - only she was able to run into a McDonald's restroom with her children and lock the door. He is also known to police in Braintree.
