Chicago White Sox fan suing the team over fan brawl

Apr 9, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

Remember the brawl in the U.S. Cellular Field stands at that Cub-Sox game last June?  A White Sox fan named Rubin Lopez does because he was arrested, allegedly beat up by the off duty cops who served as security guards at the game and had his career as a Cook County corrections officer royally screwed because of it. Now he’s suing the White Sox and the off-duty cops in question.

The kicker: according to Lopez, his only role in the ruckus was in trying to tell the cops that the man they were arresting for starting it — a guy in a Cubs jersey — wasn’t the right guy.

The lesson: never stand up for Cubs fans. It only leads to trouble.

    I’ll remember that, Craig! On an unrelated note, Marmol made the Heymaker look pretty silly with that slider last night, eh?

    Yeah, he pretty much embarrassed him. Which is going to happen a lot no matter how much Kool-Aid we Braves fans drink.
