Andrew Square fare jumper had a stun gun, police say

Guy with stun gun

Transit Police report stopping and then arresting a Haverhill man spotted fare jumping at the Andrew Red Line stop yesterday.

At first, police say, officers arrested him because he had a warrant for an outstanding warrant out of Haverhill, but then charged him with unlawful possession of an electronic control weapon after he admitted he had a stun gun in his bag.

Police say officers were at the fare gates at Andrew around 6 p.m., looking for fare jumpers, when they spotted Seth Sparks, 21, of Haverhill, push his way through the fare gates without paying - normally just a ticketable offense, unless you happen to have an outstanding arrest warrant and are packing a stun gun.

Innocent, etc.

Seth Sparks’ Stun Gun, there’s a rhyme lurking somewheres there.

Seth Sparks packed a stun gun,
through Andrew Square turnstiles attempted to run.
But T-Cops were there,
a circumstance rare!
And thus ended Seth Sparks stun gun run fun.

If you're going to commit a crime, keep it to one at a time.

Tell us more about the role of these Guardians of the Fare Gates. Do they were uniforms or are they undercover like 21 Jump Street and the Shield..
