Transit Police/Glen Carbonneau
On September 11th, 2012 at approximately 7:30pm a Transit Police officer on patrol at Wonderland Station had his attention drawn to a male cab driver chasing another male, later identified as Glen Carbonneau, 38 of Swampscott, through the Wonderland MBTA station parking lot. Upon seeing the Transit Police officer the cab driver yelled out "He didn't pay his cab fare!". The officer stopped Carbonneau, Carbonneau stated he and his friend hired the cab in Copley Sq. Boston to drive them to Wonderland and "his friend" pre-paid the fare. Carbonneau claimed to not have any money on him. Upon hearing Carbonneau state he did not have any money the cab driver became upset and left the area before the officer could investigate further. However the officer discovered there was a Default Warrant in existence for Carbonneau's arrest issued by Chelsea District Court for Unlicensed Operation of Motor Vehicle and Marked Lane violation. Carbonneau was placed into custody for the warrant and transported(for free again) back to Boston @ Transit Police HQ for processing.
