Thrown beer leads to mischief charge against fan at Blue Jays game
By The Canadian PressNews Retail
Toronto police say a man has been charged with mischief after a baby was hit by the spray of a thrown beer can at Wednesday's Blue Jays game.
Const. Victor Kwong says Albert Grummitt was arrested Wednesday night and has since been released. He is due in court on Nov. 24.
Police say the baby was with her mother in the front row of the Rogers Centre when the can was tossed their way.
Television cameras captured a teary woman holding her baby shortly after the incident.
Const. David Hopkinson says the baby wasn’t hit by the can and is OK.
Fans tossed beer cans and other debris onto the field after a controversial call in the seventh inning that gave the Texas Rangers a short-lived lead. The Jays eventually won the game 6-3 to win their American League Division Series in five games.
