Some men dream of spending the day at a ball park in the summer. Chicago Cubs fan Daniel Krupa will not be allowed to live out that fantasy this year.
A judge banned Krupa from attending Wrigley Field this summer after Krupa displayed some horrid behavior at Sunday’s game. Park security received a number of complaints about Krupa, who was described as being “drunk and belligerent,” according to DNAInfo.com. Krupa, 20, was also found in possession of two IDs that belonged to people over the age of 21.
Once approached by park security, Krupa decided to make the situation worse for himself.
Krupa then poked a security guard, an off-duty Chicago Police officer, in the chest and refused to leave, saying “You can’t tell me s—. I ain’t leaving,” the report said.
He then started flailing his arms and stiffening his body so the guards couldn’t remove him from the stadium, Assistant State’s Attorney Erin Antonietti said during a bond hearing Monday.
Krupa was charged with aggravated battery to a peace officer, criminal trespass to land, three counts of obstruction and two counts of theft, one for each ID.
That’s a pretty impressive list of charges. Krupa’s ban from the park will last until his case is resolved. It’s unclear how long that will take.
Good on Wrigley Field security for taking care of this clown. While many attend baseball games to have a good time, acting like a fool and generally being a jerk should not be tolerated.
Sounds like the punishment fits the crime, in this case. That’s a shame, too, because it looks like the Cubs might be playing meaninful games this September. It doesn’t seem like anyone will be shedding tears if Krupa is able to make it down to the park in order to celebrate.
