After hitting a police officer at the Toronto Blue Jays’ home opening on Friday, a lady is facing charges.
Officers were dispatched to the Rogers Centre’s 500 level soon before 10:30 p.m. after allegations of an altercation.
According to authorities, a lady and a male were involved in a physical altercation with numerous other game attendees.
Officers attempted to separate the groups and de-escalate the situation.
The woman and man were asked to leave the stadium due to disorderly behaviour, and the woman subsequently punched an officer in the face, police said.
No injuries were reported.
On Saturday, police said a 27-year-old woman, of Toronto, was arrested and charged with assaulting a police officer and being intoxicated in a public space.
Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact police at 416-808-5200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
The game was the first home opener in the city since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
