Man charged for selling subway token

`Transit police handcuffed and cited a man who sold a $1.75 US subway token to another rider who was having trouble with a token vending machine. He vows to fight the citation in court.

Transit authority spokeswoman Jocelyn Baker said Friday that the officer “acted within the law” after he spotted Donald Pirone, 42, apparently selling the token Nov. 30 inside the West End subway station. [..]

Baker acknowledged that Pirone sold the token at face value and did not make a profit. But the law is the law, she said.’
