Fight on MetroLink Train Lead to Arrests

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Two men are in police custody after a fight broke out this morning on a MetroLink train.

Metro spokesperson Patti Beck says two coworkers were aboard a train heading west on the Blue Line around 6 a.m. when the physical altercation began.

Other riders reached officials through an on-board alert system and Beck says County Police were waiting for the combatants at the next stop, per company policy.

“We’ll try to figure out what happened, and see if someone needs to be taken into custody,” explained Beck.

The names of those arrested have not yet been released.
