The O's and Camden Yards crime: A guest post written by “The Intern,” who for the sake of his legal career will remain anonymousThe Boys of Summer are back in Baltimore, and so far they are even winning ballgames. Winning baseball games has unfortunately become an abnormality in the Charm City, a town that has become more well known for the HBO Series The Wire than its once rich tradition of pennants and trophies. However, there is another Orioles' tradition that continues to thrive. That is the tradition of drunken half naked fans scampering incoherently and belligerently on the baseball diamond before being smothered into the pitch. Your Maryland lawyer wants you to know of the history of crimes at Camden Yards and what possible consequences you might face if charged with a crime.

Rationale of past Camden yards Streakers' have included everything from expensive wagers with friends to political protests. In 1999, when the Cuban All-Star team made the historic visit to Camden Yards, four fans ran onto the field yielding signs of protest against Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro. The actions so offended one of the Cuban umpires that the unbiased referee subsequently lifted the fan turned protestor over his head and threw him to the ground in a move usually reserved for the WWE. http://articles.latimes.com/1999/may/04/sports/sp-33956

Fan favorite Adam Jones has begun [caption id="" align="alignleft" width="396" caption=""Batman Begins" the season"][/caption] advocating for the use of tazers, a practice that has become as iconic to Philadelphia as the Philly Cheeseteak. So before consuming that last beer to put you over the fence, you might want to think through the consequences beyond getting a tackle that is normally seen by #52 or even tazered.
