get stuck, say fuck, tough luck, 25 bucks

Angry Outburst Costs Rider (
A wheelchair-bound rider of the DC Metro, after calling ahead of time to find out which elevators were out of service, got stuck in the underground system after two other elevators not reported as out of service also failed to work. In his frustration at failing to get assistance from the Metro employees, he twice shouted an obscenity. He got their attention… and a $25 fine from a Metro police officer.
Today’s paper follows up that the Metro Police Chief will dismiss the case, void the ticket, and refund the fine, after an outcry from the public and a chastisement from a Metro Board member.
