Metro fires employee after arrest

A Metro worker who was arrested for assault at Pentagon City Metro station June 10 was fired Wednesday, according to a transit authority spokesman.

Robert Moss, who Metro described earlier this month as an employee with the Track and Structures/Systems Maintenance Department, "appeared to be intoxicated and attempted to assault two police officers," spokesman Steven Taubenkibel said in an e-mail. "He was subsequently arrested. This employee was terminated, effective June 30."

The day after Moss's arrest, Metro spokesman Reggie Woodruff said the incident with Metro Transit Police occurred while Moss was off duty. Moss "appeared to be "unsteady on his feet," Woodruff said, and "began to run as the officers approached. He then struggled with the officers when they apprehended him."
