Transit Police report arresting Richard Bridgeman, 53, on a charge of malicious destruction of property on account of how they say he hurled a brick at a T bus on Mass. Ave. near Shawumut Avenue around 10:30 a.m. yesterday, shattering the windshield.
Police say that when officers asked him why he threw a brick at the bus, he did not reply that his name was Ignatz. Instead, police say, he said he was angry that the bus driver didn't stop for him. Police did not say whether Bridgeman was already carrying the brick or whether he picked it up from one of the brick sidewalks along that stretch of Mass. Ave.
