Pembroke man arrested for OUI: Ruggles Station

Jason Howe
On August 3, 2019 at approximately 11:51PM Transit Police officers assigned to the South District received a radio call to respond to the MBTA Ruggles busway for a car blocking/preventing buses from entering or exiting the station. Upon arrival officers observed a Honda Accord, with the engine running, the driver's side door open and parked vertically completely blocking the lower busway.

Officers made contact with the operator, later identified as Jason Howe, 33, of Pembroke. Officers, based on their personal observations, suspected Howe was under the influence of alcohol. After series of tests Howe was placed into custody for Operating a MV while Intoxicated and transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.  During the booking process Howe was administered a Breath Test which showed he was three times over the legal limit.

media inquiries should be directed to Superintendent Richard Sullivan at
