Journalist Tyler Green kicked out of Gallery Place Metro after someone puts out a cigarette on his foot

Journalist Tyler Green tweets about his recent experience in the Gallery Place Metro Station.

Apparently, someone on the metro platform put out a cigarette on his foot, which (not surprisingly) caused him to jump.

That, however, was enough for Metro Transit Police, who promptly kicked him out of the station.

We haven't heard from Transit Police or anyone else with another side of the story; if you have a different view please email us!

  1. Needless to say there was more to it than that 140 chars, but the combination of a very crowded station, too few fare gates being open, a lot of pushing-and-shoving by a just-after-the-game hockey crowd and WMATA cops willfully ignoring a drunk woman smoking and ashing on people made for a bad mix... and they messed up.
