Video Shows Metro Transit Police Officer Taking 13-Year-Old Boy Into Custody

A video posted on Twitter shows Metro Transit Police taking into custody a crying 13-year-old boy who refused provide his mother’s name or number after he was stopped for “horseplay” Thursday night.

According to police, two officers on a Green Line train saw two boys grabbing each other as if they were in a fight on the platform at the Shaw-Howard Metro Station. The officers got off the train to see if they were fighting, and the boys said they were just playing.

An officer told them they couldn’t play like that and asked for the name and phone number of a parent or guardian, police said.
