NEW YORK (AP) – A baseball fan who jumped from the upper deck at Yankee Stadium onto the netting behind home plate has been banned for life from the ballpark and could be sent to jail, a judge said Wednesday.
Scott Harper, 19, of Armonk, N.Y., pleaded guilty Wednesday to reckless endangerment following last season’s plunge at the New York Yankees’ Bronx stadium. District Attorney Robert Johnson recommended probation and restitution to the Yankees, but Harper rejected the deal.
Harper’s criminal sentence, to be handed down Sept. 19, will depend on the outcome of another case in Westchester County for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, state Supreme Court Judge Troy Webber said.
The district attorney’s office recommended 30 days in jail; Harper had faced up to a year.
A telephone message left at Harper’s home was not immediately returned Wednesday.
