Male arrested for Disorderly Conduct at Forest Hills

Paul Griffin
On September 1, 2017 at approximately 8:15PM Transit Police officers assigned to the South District received a radio call to respond to the MBTA Forest Hills Station for a report of a male refusing to exit a bus. Upon arrival officers entered the bus and encountered the male in question, later identified as Paul Griffin, 51, of West Roxbury. Griffin was verbally abusive towards the officers but eventually exited the bus. However once outside Griffin continued his tirade, exposed his genitals and began urinating while swiveling his torso. This was done in view of a father and his two young daughters.

Officers placed Griffin into custody for Open & Gross and Disorderly Conduct. Griffin was transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.
