Rumpelstiltskin ???????

John Kimball
On November 22, 2013 at approximately 11:40 am Transit Police officers from Area 2 received a radio call to respond to Davis Sq. MBTA station for a disorderly male drinking on the platform. Upon arrival officers observed a male shouting profanities and threats at other patrons. Officers attempted to calm the man but were unsuccessful. The male continued his tumultuous behavior causing other patrons to move away in fear. The male's refusal to leave the station or cease his behavior left the officers with no choice but to place him into custody for Disorderly Conduct. When asked to identify himself the male claimed to be "Rumpelstiltskin". 

Officers not convinced they were dealing with Rumpelstilskin investigated a little further and ascertained the man's true identity; John Kimball, 57 of Boston. Kimball is expected to be arraigned in Somerville District Court sometime on 11/25/2013 for Disorderly Conduct.
