AFD North Station this morning (can we send the repair bill to UMass?)
One of the downsides of having AFD North Station almost contiguous with UMass is, well, you are almost contiguous with UMass.
Which has a lot of, you know, students ... Who on occasion --and only a very tiny minority -- drink too damn much and get a tad out of hand.
Like very early this morning (1:45 am) for instance. A 21-year-old UMass student forced his way into North Station via a window, cutting himself badly enough in the process to require transport to Cooley Dickinson Hospital.
He was belligerent at the station but personnel managed to calm him down. During the transport, however, he became especially belligerent so that the driver had to pull over and go help the EMT in the back of the ambulance.
Hadley PD arrested him for assault and battery on an emergency medical technician and Amherst PD also hit him with a "summons" arrest for Breaking & Entering in the night time.
Perhaps Enku Gelaye, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, will have something to say about it as well.
