Paid leave for charged Metro worker

Metro has placed a track worker on paid administrative leave after he was arrested Thursday by Metro Transit Police and charged with being drunk in public and impeding a police officer with force.

Robert Moss, an employee of Metro's Track and Structures/Systems Maintenance Department, was off duty at the time of his arrest at Pentagon City Station.

Police noticed Moss was unsteady on his feet and approached him. Moss, who has worked for Metro since 2006, ran from and then struggled with officers as they apprehended him, Metro said.

"Robert Moss is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation by Metro," Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said.
