Disastrous Commute Thursday morning, staff at Tukwila Station say this homeless guy was stumbling around and in really bad shape. Witnesses say he was seen consuming alcohol and drugs. Medics were called and riders expressed concern. But he was eventually allowed to board a King County Metro (@KingCountyMetro) bus in terrible shape.
