Brooklyn Man Attacks Lovable Mr. Met
At a recent Mets game, a drunken fan manhandled the Amazin's smiling, giant-baseball-headed mascot and also allegedly knocked down kids and took a swing at a security guard. Christian Hansen of Gowanus, Brooklyn, was seen "harassing Mr. Met and pushing little children out of the way" at Shea Stadium. As security guards escorted out the Mr. Met-basher, Hansen took a wild swing at an employee and spit in his face. Cops arrested Hansen, 32, and charged him with criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and harassment. Mr. Met was uninjured during the fracas and received an IV from an EMT crew to make sure his energy was back to where it needs to be in order to frolic around Shea like a true fruitcake.
