|James M. Tilton|
On evening of October 26th, 2013 Transit Police detectives positively verified the male subject arrested was NOT William Tilton but rather his estranged brother James M.Tilton, 57 years of age. Upon ascertaining this information we took immediate action to correct the misleading and criminal act of James M. Tilton. Earlier this afternoon (10/28/2013) Transit Police detectives secured an arrest warrant for James M. Tilton issued from South Boston District Court for Operating under the Influence of Liquor 3rd Offence, Operating after Suspension; Subsequent Offence and False Name at Booking.
Due to human error, there was a breakdown in the verification process. We are conducting a thorough evaluation of our policies and procedures and will take whatever corrective action is necessary to prevent something like this from occurring again.
