A man was taken off a BART train in Oakland this morning after scaring passengers by talking about weapons of mass destruction, an agency spokesman said.
BART officers responded at about 9:20 a.m. to the 12th Street Oakland City Center station to a report of a man on a train who was scaring other passengers by saying “you should be aware of weapons of mass destruction,” BART spokesman Linton Johnson said.
Another passenger on the train, Michelle King, posted on the microblogging website Twitter that the man was “clapping loudly and talking about WOMD,” a reference to weapons of mass destruction.
