Marblehead man jailed for head butting bus driver

Posted: Updated:

CHELSEA, Mass. (AP) — A Marblehead man has been sentenced to three months in jail after pleading guilty to head butting an MBTA bus driver.

Prosecutors say 48-year-old John Kerivan pleaded guilty Tuesday in Chelsea District Court to assault and battery on a public employee just before his trial was scheduled to begin.

Prosecutors say Kerivan was waiting for a bus at the Wonderland station last July.

When the bus arrived, authorities say, Kerivan began screaming at the driver. When the driver attempted to calm him, Kerivan head butted the MBTA worker, who was disoriented and sought treatment at a hospital.

The MBTA recently announced a crackdown on abuse and attacks on its workers.
