The teen fan that bolted towards second base during Tuesday’s MLB all-star game could face up to a year in jail.
Dylan McCue-Masone has been charged with third-degree criminal trespassing by the Queens Criminal Court, according to a Thursday report from news website DNAinfo New York.
The 18-year-old Shirley, N.Y., man was tackled by a security guard on his way to second base and the situation died down.
“What is particularly disturbing in this case is that the incident occurred while the game was in progress and the players were on the field,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
Before jumping onto the diamond, the New York Yankees fan challenged the social media world to test his will.
In a tweet, that has since been deleted, McCue-Masone said he would charge the field if he received 1,000 retweets. Word quickly spread and the thrill seeker stayed true to his word.
Despite the deleted tweets from Tuesday, McCue-Masone’s account (@MasoneDylan) is still alive and well.
Biggest mistake I have ever made, I regret what happened to the fullest extent. I will be paying for this the rest of my life.— dyl (@MasoneDylan) July 19, 2013
Along with jail time, McCue-Masone could receive a $1,000 fine and civil penalties up to $5,000.
He is scheduled to appear in court for the first time on Sept. 1.
