In this economy, it is common for fans to jump seats to get closer to the action but be careful! Off-duty NYC police officer Eduardo Cornejo was arrested for seat stealing at Citi Field. Cornejo, who had a ticket to Wednesday’s Mets-Cincinnati Reds game, is being charged with trespassing.
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said, “He (Cornejo) was in a section he wasn’t supposed to be, they asked him to leave. He wouldn’t. A supervisor asked him to leave. He wouldn’t. The uniformed police sergeant asked him to leave. He wouldn’t, and he was arrested as a result.”
Despite the arrest, Cornejo is not letting it effect his love for the Mets. Cornejo was wearing a NY Mets hat at his home in Staten Island when a NY Post writer asked for a comment. The worst part of the story is the Mets didn’t even win the game, falling to the Reds 6-2.
