    Police: Woman Threatens to Bite Ear Off MBTA Transit Officer After Threatening Bus Employee
    Sheila Lynch was arrested at South Station on Thursday after she allegedly pulled a knife on a Peter Pan bus employee who would not refund her ticket and threatening to bite of their ear.

    A Massachusetts woman is facing charges after authorities say she threatened a bus terminal employee and then threatened to bite the ear off of an MBTA transit police officer.

    Sheila Lynch, 29, of Dorchester, was taken into custody Thursday afternoon at South Station Bus Terminal.

    Transit Police said officers on patrol were approached at 5:40 p.m. by an employee of Peter Pan Bus Lines who said Lynch had demanded a refund on her bus ticket. When the employee tried to calm Lynch down, Lynch allegedly pulled out a knife and made threats against the employee.

    Officers located Lynch in the terminal and recovered the knife.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    Transit Police then discovered that Lynch had an arrest warrant issued for her out of Dorchester District Court for threats to commit a crime and assault with a dangerous weapon (knife).

    As she was taken into custody, police said she also made a threat against the transit officer saying, "I'm going to bite your ear off... I can take you."

    It's unclear exactly what charges Lynch is facing and when she will appear in court.
