Alleged trolley blocker arrested in Brookline

Transit Police report arresting a man they say was stood in front of a C Line trolley in Washington Square and refused to let it pass, around 5:15 p.m. on Sunday.

David Carr, of no particular address, was also harassing passengers on the trolley, police say, adding that once they got Carr off the tracks, looked him up and discovered he was also wanted on outstanding warrants in Brookline for assault and battery on a police officer, assault and battery and shopliftng.

Also, he was wanted for failing to register as a sex offender, for a series of convictions between 1996 and 2010 for indecent assault and battery and open and gross lewd behavior.

Innocent, etc.

I've seen him within the last couple of weeks, including a jaunt on the Green Line, rather far from his usual Downtown Crossing environs.

Spare Change Guy is named John Bubier, not David Carr. Spare Change Guy even has his own UHub tag.

Probably thought he was channeling Tank Man from Tienanmen Square.

Who the hell did he think he was, anyhow?

Sounds like there might be some mental health issues here (or just a real jerk, hard to know.)
