BART Officer, Suspect Bloodied In Scuffle

A Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer was injured while removing an unruly passenger from a train Saturday evening during a bizarre incident captured on video, and authorities told CBS 5 that the same man had been arrested earlier in the day for assaulting a person aboard a SamTrans bus.

Officers responding to a report of a disturbance at the West Oakland station found 37-year-old Michael Joseph Gibson of San Leandro, who appeared to be intoxicated, challenging others to fight and yelling racial slurs and profanity, according to BART police Cmdr. Daniel Hartwig.
