A man was jailed on suspicion of battering a BART passenger at the North Berkeley station Saturday afternoon, police said. Danny Angelo Rodriguez, 37, of San Francisco, was taken into custody around 1 p.m., BART police said.
A prohibition order was issued for Rodriguez and he was booked into Santa Rita Jail, according to BART police. Prohibition orders ban offenders from the BART system for 30 days to a year.
Assembly Bill 716, which went into effect in 2013, allows BART to enforce prohibition orders for serious crimes such as violence against passengers or employees.
