Last night around 8:00, I got an alert from the T that the red line was experiencing 10-15 minute delays due to unruly passengers. Usually, delays are caused by switching problems, disabled trains, or, occasionally, police actions; I've never seen the unruly passengers cause before.

Does anyone know what was going on?

I usually look here: http://www.universalhub.com/redline.html but they have no comment.

Maybe the Bruins game? Those hockey mofos are unruly.

i have totally seen this sort of thing. often the delay is because they have to bring out an officer to remove someone from a train.

the one time i saw this happen, i think it was the same guy that was on my train home last night. it wouldn't surprise me too much if it was the same guy that caused the delay around 8pm, and he had just boarded a different train.

in other news, how do you sign up for those alerts?

I find that every once in a while, it saves me some travel pain, which makes it worthwhile, even though a lot of the time it's extraneous information.

I was intrigued by that notice as well -- it's the first time I've seen that cause listed.

Sometimes, people on mbta enjoy digging up the answers to questions like this.
