Fun time in Cincinnati last night! First it was Jeff Brantley professing his admiration for Ted DiBiase, then some fine folks from my town decided to go all Rick Dempsey on us:
During a lengthy rain delay at Tuesday night’s Cincinnati Reds game, two men jumped from the stands onto the field – one of them flopping onto the tarp covering the infield and sliding on his belly. Cory Allen, 20, of Columbus and Casey Allen, 25, of Hilliard, Ohio, are facing charges of criminal trespassing and obstructing official business. If they are related was not clear. About 8 p.m., one of the men ran onto the field, reports said. He executed the belly flop to loud applause and tried to run away, but slipped on the wet outfield grass and was apprehended. He was led away in handcuffs. The other man ran onto the field, jumped back into the stands, but later ran on the field again. He again jumped back in the stands, but was surrounded and apprehended.
Each man faces up to 120 days in jail if convicted.
Put differently, these men could conceivably get four times longer in jail than Donte Stallworth is getting for killing a guy while drunk driving.
