During the booking process the male subject furnished the name of William Tilton, of Wilmington, as well as providing officers William Tilton's name, address and social security number and other personal identifiers, according to MBTA Lt. Det. Richard Sullivan.
This information was provided to media outlets.
Later, officers identified the male subject arrested was not William Tilton but rather his estranged brother James M. Tilton, 57. James Tilton will face additional charges for providing a false name
On Oct. 25 at approximately 1 a.m. MBTA Transit Police officers responded to the D street portal of the Silver Line tunnel for a vehicle that entered through a bus-only right-of-way, crashing into a security barrier.
Officers found Tilton walking around a 2003 Buick Centry that was lodged on the barrier, according to MBTA police.
Tilton allegedly told police he had left the Bruins game and was instructed to take the bus-only path by a friend, according to prosecutors. He also allegedly admitted to having two or three beers but told officers that he was not drunk, prosecutors said.
According to police, Tilton had an odor of alcohol about his person and he was unsteady on his feet.
Tilton submitted to and failed a series of field sobriety tests. His blood alcohol level was .15 – nearly twice the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle, prosecutors said.
