An intoxicated Dorchester man got his car stuck on Commuter Rail tracks in Somerville and called MBTA Transit Police to help him get free, according to a post on the transit police blog.

The blog post says police received the phone call at about 11:40 p.m. on Jan. 4.

The caller, 30-year-old Daniel Kenney, had somehow lodged his car on the tracks inside the Boston Engine Terminal Mystic train yard, near the carhouse, the blog post says. This is in the Inner Belt section of East Somerville.

When police arrived they saw the car rocking back and forth on the Commuter Rail tracks, unable to get free, according to the post.

Kenney appeared to be intoxicated, and after conducting field sobriety tests, the MBTA Transit Police arrested him and charged him with operating a vehicle while under the influence of liquor. He was scheduled to be arraigned in Somerville District Court Monday.

"It was unclear how Kenney ended up inside the train yard stuck on the tracks," the blog post says.

Please remember that arrests do not indicate a conviction.
