Worcester woman wanted for assaulting a Police Officer draws attention to herself.

Joanne Keenan
On October 5, 2015 at approximately 1pm Transit Police officers on patrol at the MBTA's South Station Commuter Rail observed a female, later identified as Joanne Keenan, 48, of Worcester smoking a cigarette directly beneath a "NO SMOKING" sign. Officers approached Keenan for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there were several warrants in existence for Keenan's arrest issued from Worcester District Court for Assault & Battery on a Police Officer, Assault & Battery on Ambulance Personnel and Disorderly Conduct. Keenan was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
