The first thing that came to mind, of course, was that the guy must have had a lot more beers then the number of innings played. The surprising detail that came to light is that according to police he was not drunk and "unable to care for himself or a danger to others". He will be charged, however with a misdemeanor trespass under Penal Code Section 602. Another possible charge could be Penal Code Section 415 disturbing the peace, also a misdemeanor. Trespass can carry a sentence of 6 months in jail while disturbing the peace can carry a sentence of 90 days. Generally, neither charge results in jail time for a first time offender.
The bottom line on this case: This Angels' baseball fan likes his fame with a side of trespass, please!
