NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Midsummer Classic wasn’t all fun and games.
Prosecutors said Thursday a suburban New York man who ran onto the field during the All-Star game at Citi Field faces up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. The suspect allegedly did it on a Twitter dare.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said 18-year-old Dylan McCue-Masone of Shirley, on Long Island, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Wednesday. He’s charged with interfering with a professional sporting event.
Brown said McCue-Masone allegedly initiated a dare to run onto the field if he received 1,000 responses to his tweet about it.
McCue-Masone also faces civil penalties of $5,000. He was released without bail and is due back in court on Sept. 11.
He was represented by an attorney from Legal Aid, which did not immediately respond to a comment request Thursday.
