During a 13-0 blowout win for the Royals over the Minnesota Twins, a 25-year old woman from Iowa decided to liven things up by taking a splash inside the fountains at Kauffman Stadium. Kansas City police cited Jessica McCoy with three charges of trespassing, resisting arrest and solicitation. She spent the night in jail but was released Tuesday morning.
“We believe she was a little intoxicated when she decided to go for a walk in the fountain pool,” police Major Floyd Mitchell told the Kansas City Star.
A Royals spokesman released a statement on the event. “It might look funny on websites, but it’s a dangerous thing to do. Not only gets you out of the ball park really fast, it’s something we want to encourage fans not to consider because somebody could get seriously hurt if they go into the fountain.”
