Woman took a forklift for an erratic spin on a Cambridge street early Saturday, police say

Cambridge Police report arresting a Somerville woman they say officers found driving a forklift "in a reckless manner" down Prospect Street near Hampshire Street shortly before 3 a.m. on Saturday.

Once they stopped her, police say, they arrested her on charges of operating under the influence of drugs, wanton destruction of property worth more than $1,200, use without authority, receiving stolen property and driving the forklift with a suspended license.

That's just outside of Inman Square, an area where I have almost been run over too many times to count. Now I have to watch for drunk forklifters too?

My favorite was when a Leominster driver was upset that a cyclist wouldn't get out of her way in the **right lane** of Hampshire Street, and then got aggro and dented her hood.

You can't make this stuff up!

This comment of yours makes as much sense as all the others: random, pointlessly antagonistic gibberish. You're a trollbot, not a human.

They handle the constabulary duties in your area of WestMass, right?

A lot of people get extra cranky this time of year, and I guess that include you, and it is some kind of extra. Take a day off from being a jerk for once.

Fork this!

Fork that!

Fork that other thing!

Very uplifting!

Maybe I'm missing an opportunity here - I could get a bunch of used industrial totes and fill them with water and rocks and then charge people to stack them, topple them, dump them, etc. with forklifts. The griefers could go nuts wrecking the place with the forklifts, and then the stackers could come in and do some therapeutic reorganization and cleanup.

I've heard of "construction parks" where you can pay to play around with bulldozers and backhoes and whatnot. Forklifts would be a great addition.

(I would like my forklift dressed in a goose costume, please.)

The infamous Klaus is, of course, the ultimate unsafe forklift operator.
