Cops don't have mullets!

This is quite possibly the funniest arrest report I've ever read, but I'm glad the kid is safe. From the Boston Herald:

The boy told his father. Quoth the father:

Saw the graffiti on this MBTA blue line sign and I couldn't resist taking a pic. Sorry for the crappy image, but the lighting was less than ideal. The sign is one of the T's "See Something, Say Something" posters. It says "Security isn't about wearing a uniform." Underneath that some clever soul has added, "It's about the donuts."
