The teenager who used social media to pressure himself into running onto Citi Field during Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game could face one year in jail for the mischievous act.
Long Island native Dylan McCue-Masone, 18, was arraigned in a Queens Criminal Court this week on multiple charges including third-degree criminal trespassing.
He is slated to re-appear in court on Sept. 11, and if convicted, faces the very real possibility that he could spend up to one year in jail, along with owing thousands of dollars in civil penalties.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown chimed in on the incident by saying, “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.”
The teenager made his infamous scamper onto the diamond in the fifth inning after plotting out his plan of attack on Twitter. Hours before the game, he sent out a tweet saying he would run across the field if his message received 1,000 retweets. Obviously, he received the necessary amount of retweets and the rest is history.
