Blue Jays fan arrested after beer sprayed on baby

News staff and The Canadian Press | posted Thursday, Oct 15th, 2015

Toronto police have arrested a man after a baby was hit by the spray of a thrown beer can at the Blue Jays game Wednesday.

Police say the baby was with her mother in the front row of the Rogers Centre when the can was tossed their way.

Television cameras captured a teary woman holding her baby shortly after the incident.

Const. David Hopkinson says the baby wasn’t hit by the can and is OK.

The fan was charged with mischief under $5000 and released. His name and age have not been released.

No one was else was arrested inside or outside the stadium and no major damage was reported.

Fans tossed beer cans and other debris onto the field after a controversial call in the seventh inning that gave the Texas Rangers a short-lived lead. The Jays eventually won the game 6-3 to win their American League Division Series in five games.
