Reynaldo probably just didn't realize that you had to pay to use BART. After watching so many other people walk through the emergency exit without paying, he must have thought that BART was a donation based system. The resisting officers part was just Reynaldo having a natural reaction to police, who he has been terrorized by for 31 years. Thankfully fare evasion and resisting arrest aren't crimes that CA courts have an interest in punishing, so Reynaldo is probably already out of custody and free to fare evade again in peace.
