Berkeley and BART Officers responded to both Berkeley stations regarding a male suspect who was reportedly walking on the #1 track way, from the downtown station toward the North Berkeley Station, while intoxicated and disconnecting emergency phones along the way. Power was shut down on both track ways, and medical personnel staged as officers eventually managed to safely detain the suspect in the underground tunnel/track way between the two stations. Officers determined the suspect was too intoxicated to care for himself, in addition to his trespassing on the track way, and placed him under arrest for both violations. As a precaution, medical personnel cleared the suspect before he was booked into the Berkeley City Jail. Due to this incident, trains were delayed for approximately 30 minutes; nothing unusual was located on the incident track way. TSOC notified. 1604-1005 L22/L10
