Quite a morning in Fort Point: Cab stolen & crashed

Before most of you were up.  Before you even had a sip of coffee, the following shenanigans took place on Wednesday morning:

A man allegedly stole a cab from South Station, crashed it only a block away at the Summer Street Bridge, then jumped into the Fort Point Channel where he swam out a few yards to cling to floating art display. 

According to WCVB Channel 5, the suspect was placed in custody, promptly arrested by the BPD and taken to an area hospital.  

How’s your morning going?
