Be aware, RPs, don't fall asleep on the train in NYC, or the Gestapo could do this to you!

What did this man do to get arrested by the Gestapo??? Fall asleep on an almost empty train and occupy more than one seat. We repeat, the train was almost empty! According to The Gothamist:

"NYPD has confirmed that they arrested the man in this video because he was disobeying a Transit rule violation of laying outstretched occupying more than one seat. He was also charged with resisting arrest and second-degree obstruction of governmental administration..."


According to the MTA rules, sleeping or dozing on a train is permitted as long as it is not “hazardous to such person or to others or may interfere with the operation of the Authority’s transit system or the comfort of its passengers.” So what did this man do that was hazardous to anyone? Do the Transit cops have a quota to fill like the traffic cops?!?!
