Subsequently the officer soon discovered there were several outstanding warrants in existence for Burke's arrest issued from Lowell District Court for Receiving Stolen Property, Larceny, Possession of a Class E drug and Woburn District Court for Possession of a Class A drug. As the officer attempted to place Burke into custody he forcefully pushed the officer and fled out of the station and onto Columbia Road. Several other Transit Police units responded and ultimately located Burke hiding inside Tedeschi's on Dorchester Avenue. Burke was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. It is expected Burke will be arraigned sometime today in Dorchester District Court for resisting arrest.
