Last night, you were trapped at BART with nowhere to go, asking yourself "why, why?"
Well, we have some answers for you.
Sgt. Eric O'Neal sent out a short email explaining why police had to shut down the entire BART system citywide, leaving commuters in the lurch at the peak of the evening rush hour.
This is what happened:
At about 4:30 p.m., the cops were investigating a robbery in the area of 22nd and Mission streets where the two suspects were spotted selling stolen property.
"Suspects attempted to evade officers by running into the Bart tunnels at 24th/Mission Bart Station," O'Neal says.
Officers chased the suspects through the BART tunnels, forcing all trains to come to a screeching halt. Stations were jammed packed with pissy commuters, who were eventually kicked out of the station due to overcrowding.
After about 30 minutes, BART trains resume service, but the crowds and delays still lingered through the evening commute.
"Suspects are still outstanding and the search continue [sic]," O'Neal says. "One person was taken into police custody for purchasing the stolen property."
So that's why you missed dinner -- again.
