A bomb threat during Monday morning rush hour closed Metro's Rockville rail station and required passengers from one train to be evacuated onto the tracks.
The chief of the Metro Transit Police Department initiated a formal investigation Monday into the actions of two officers who appear, in a video posted to the Internet, to have tackled a wheelchair-bound man outside a D.C. rail station, sending the victim to the hospital with a head wound.
Metro Transit Police and Montgomery County police were dispatched at about 7:45 a.m. to the station for "comments about a bomb being on the train, or someone having a bomb," Metro spokeswoman Angela Gates said.
A female suspect was taken into custody and being evaluated at a local hospital, Ms. Gates said.
