Police Incident: Disorderly Conduct in Davis Square T Station
Man allegedly called a boy and police officers "N" word and made threats.
Anyone coming in or out of the Davis Square T station at around 5:30 last night may have observed some commotion involving police and the "N" word.
According to a Somerville Police report, officers were called to the Red Line T station on Holland Street, in Davis Square, a little after 5:30 p.m. for reports of a man attacking some young people.
After police arrived at the station, they saw a man yelling and lurching at a 17-year-old boy, according to the police report.
The boy reportedly ran into the train station, and when police spoke to him he said the man had called him and a friend the "N" word and attempted to start a fight. According to the police report, the boy said this treatment was unprovoked.
While speaking to the boy, police detained the yelling man, who reportedly reacted by referring to police officers and others using the "N" word.
He then reportedly told a police officer, "I'll put a seven point six two in your head." The police officer took this to mean a 7.62 mm caliber bullet used in U.S. military M60 machine guns and other rifles.
Officers reportedly put the man under arrest at this time. When they did, he allegedly told officers they would lose their jobs because the man's father is a federal judge.
Officers thought the man seemed intoxicated, and they took him to the police station for booking.
