And a possible trespass charge as he just provided the police with a confession and all of the evidence they need.

Ya, but at this point I am sure he doesn't care about a misdemeanor trespassing charge. He did no damage and he didn't disrupt anything. Hopefully they say "no harm, no foul" or at most just ban him from the coliseum.  Of course, EVERYONE will now need to keep a closer eye on things for a while to catch the copy cats.

The usher who just waved him through after seeing descend from the stands better hope s/he's not identified.

If they noticed it and he didn't make a big deal about it they probably would have said no harm no foul, but he went public and he better hope they don't see this as him rubbing their noses in it.

awesome story. too bad he had to be an attention whore about it.

Hilarious. Good thing he wasn't a Maryland fan, though, or he'd have given both teams salmonella poisoning.

How to be somewhere you don't belong without people catching on:

1. Dress like you do belong
2. Act like you do belong

Don't forget theft (hat and shirt). He should have been happy to pull it off and left it at that. Maybe post that pic next to the trophy with no real explination.

Since it publically turned into 'this is how easily I did it', they will turn it into 'this is how easily we get you convicted'.

Yup. But in the age of Instatwitbook, people can't help but become AWs.

Frame the pic, hang it on a wall somewhere and tell stories about it. No need to inform how many people of what you did.

I had a friend that was good at this when I worked at a restaurant in the 90s...

First day of work, there was a wrestling event, and everyone kept saying that we had to 'Watch for Bobby'. Pretty soon, someone said "There he is." I looked up, and one of the wrestlers was entering with his entourage, and here's this guy in the entourage with his hands raised. Talking to him later, he said he was just walking in the back concourse, and saw these people coming down the hall. One of the people in line said 'Hey, if you want to get in with us, you'd better join now.', so he was there on TV with whoever the wrestler was...

He also went and toured the Diamondbacks' ballpark while it was being built, they got pics all through the place, including one up on top of the main beam for the opening roof. For that one, he wore a hardhat and 'construction clothes', and another friend of ours wore nice Levis, a T Shirt and a sweater vest(Yeah, I know). They looked like a major subcontractor and a foreman, and every time someone walked by, they had a conversation about how he needed 'Those supplies here yesterday.', or something similar.

He and some buddies took a 3 day trip to Chicago and ended up In Wrigley field one night, getting pictures by the ivy walls. When security found them, the guard let them finish taking their pics before escorting them out.

Absolute best one he pulled off was when the Bulls won the championship('93, I think), he got into the locker room for the celebration and was on tape interviewing Michael Jordan.
In this case, he had been leaving a Bulls game one night when he lived in Chicago, and found an NBC mic tat someone had left. It had the logo on the box around the mic, all of that stuff. He found an NBC polo at a Goodwill store, and jus showed up with a 90's camcorder... Since he looked like a reporter with the camera, the mic and the polo, nobody looked twice at him. Like I said, as a result, he not only got into the celebrating locker room, he interviewed Jordan.

This dude was REALLY good at this. I only worked at the restaurant with him for about a year and a half, and he pulled off everything but the Jordan interview in that time. As people mentioned, look like you belong there, and dress the part, and you're 90% of the way there...

They handed him the hat and shirt willingly and without question. They may have a hard time with the "theft" angle. It's not like they asked for ID verification and he produced a fake ID, they just handed them to him.

Kind of like if FedEx delivers a package to your neighbor's house and you walk up from around the side of the house and just take the package from the driver as if it were yours?

Far fetched example, I know, but it's a clear case of theft and not all that different from what the kid did.

Completely different... Besides, did he sign a name for the shirt and hat, did he misrepresent himself when they handed it to him?
 
2014-03-20 11:21:37 AM  
You don't always have to sign for packages, and he certainly did misrepresent himself. Who hasn't moved to better seats from nosebleeds? But, if you get caught, it doesn't suddenly make you right.

It's like saying a half truth isn't a lie.

The venue absolutely screwed up by not checking for an ID. I think the kid will be lucky if they don't go after him for everything possible.

It would be theft by deception.

They just added four detectives to the case.

As someone who routinely sneeks into the suites at ballgames, this is our motto.

I've been asked to move or leave the area but have only been totally kicked out in Seattle.

Seems more like if a FedEx driver drove up to a house, saw someone walking down the sidewalk in front of it, and handed them a package while driving away.

Of course, except for the fact that these shirts weren't being "delivered" to anyone in particular, and there's a possibility that this may not be the only non-affiliated individual to have received one that night.

No. These shirts were being handed out to the team, their support people and the schools bigwigs. Those were the people that were supposed to be there. He impersonated one of those people, so he received the shirt by deception. He was actively deceiving them to get something he wasn't entitled to.

ongbok: He was actively deceiving them to get something he wasn't entitled to.


He wasn't there for the shirt. He was there, and they gave him a shirt.

Seriously, there's much more of an argument here for trespassing.

And, again, these shirts can and will often end up in the hands of people other than staff, players, or "big wigs." They don't print an exact number of them and hope that only 4 "big wigs" show up on the court that day.
 
2014-03-20 05:34:09 PM  
There are also occasions where staff or "big wigs" will end up with multiple shirts/hats.

Nobody cares. Unless it's a player, then the NCAA may care (as long as it's not an SEC player, then they won't care).

Doesn't matter how you try to explain it, he excepted something that he knew he wasn't supposed to have and was given to him by mistake. That is theft.
