Deranged Dodgers fan gets arrested after defying his ban from Great American Ballpark

So there’s this 40 year-old guy from West Virginia who loves the Dodgers and goes after anyone who dares criticize Yasiel Puig. He showed up at Great American Ballpark during the Dodgers-Reds series and got arrested.

No, it is not me.

Rather, it’s Tony Sexton, who a few years ago got banned from Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati after being obnoxious and drunk. He showed up to the Dodgers-Reds game on Tuesday night, however, and was arrested again for trespassing. I love the way he’s described in the story:

Sexton is known online among Dodger fans as ”Troy From West Virginia” for video postings about the team and its players, including his admiration for former Dodger relief pitcher Joe Beimel and coarse retorts to critics of young Dodger star Yasiel Puig.

One would think the “admiration for Joe Beimel” thing would get one placed on some sort of psych watch list alone, but apparently it takes a trespassing charge to do it.

    Troy doesn’t just go after people who criticize Puig. He goes after EVERYONE, including fellow Dodger fans who agree with him about Puig being great, Dodger fans who look at the game differently, his kid’s peewee football coach, and even his own kids. The guy is an absolute pyschopath. Hope he gets some serious jail time for this one.

      I know who you mean. Yes he’s clearly insane

    Wonder what surveillance system is in use that they IDed him? Our was he being kicked out again when they checked his id? Not sure which scenario i hope happened.

      Well, you have to go through security to see a ball game these days, and since he was banned, there’s probably a picture of him at every entrance. no high tech is needed for guys like that.

      • jm91rs - Jun 13, 2014 at 1:31 PM

        But there’s got to be plenty of banned guys, and when 30,000+ are going through your gates (probably over half have hats obscuring their faces, and this guy was even wearing red like he wanted to blend in) I bet it’s hard to find them all. He probably got into another altercation.

      I was wondering the exact same thing. Being in Dodgers gear (I presume he was) probably focused security somewhat. But still.

    I appreciate your acknowledgement of your odd obsession of defending Puig with such fervor.

    As if he’s the only deranged Dodger fan. There a ton of them at Chavez Ravine.

    • akgobears - Jun 13, 2014 at 4:26 PM

      Theres a ton at chavez ravine until about the 6th inning , then they all disappear

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 14, 2014 at 8:53 PM

        and they don’t arrive until the bottom of the 3rd inning either…

  5. El Bravo - Jun 13, 2014 at 11:07 AM

    Yeah wait, how did they ID him?

    • daveitsgood - Jun 13, 2014 at 12:08 PM

      he was pretty easy to identify with his Dodgers shirt, bald head, horned rimmed glasses, constant tweeting during the game and had to 2 kids in tow…. oh wait, you meant the other guy?

      That’s my thought. More big brother stuff.

    • blabidibla - Jun 13, 2014 at 12:20 PM

      Given his history, he likely made an ass out of himself again causing security to check him out. Once there, they check his name or he was recognized.

      Stop being so paranoid. An asshat deservedly got kicked out of a ballgame

  6. blabidibla - Jun 13, 2014 at 11:13 AM

    Probably get a movie deal soon, or his own reality show.

    He must’ve been overjoyed about the Dodgers chief Rival Giants winning two very recent World Championships.

    • akgobears - Jun 13, 2014 at 4:24 PM

      along with their present 9 game lead over the Dodger blues

  8. jerze2387 - Jun 13, 2014 at 12:53 PM

    All he had to do was grow a big beard (or shave it if he had one when banned before) smh

  9. musketmaniac - Jun 13, 2014 at 1:58 PM

    Slander, Slander, This guy is a smoked up Californian, hallucination that he is west Virginian. Until there is proof, you Californians can keep him.

    • akgobears - Jun 13, 2014 at 4:23 PM

      nah, we can live without your hilltop hillbilly……at least until you get him a full set of teeth and rid him of his main squeeze (sister)

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 14, 2014 at 8:56 PM

        We’re ALL Americans bub…

        Nothing wrong with hillbillies…

        Beats the gang bangers in all the big cities…

        Like oh, the Crips and the Bloods…

  10. akgobears - Jun 13, 2014 at 4:22 PM

    This is a story why ??

  11. musketmaniac - Jun 13, 2014 at 4:43 PM

    there are more hillbillies in Ohio than West Virginia, maybe he’s one of theirs.

    • gloccamorra - Jun 13, 2014 at 11:54 PM

      Impossible. There are no HILLS in Ohio.

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 14, 2014 at 8:59 PM

        spoken like a person who’s probably never been to Ohio…

        just Google “Hocking Hills Ohio”

        beautiful, waterfalls… really great place…

        southern Ohio is along the river from the Hills of Kentucky…

        pretty area in southern Ohio…

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 14, 2014 at 9:01 PM

        just google “corkscrew falls hocking hills Ohio”

        just look at the image on google images of the corkscrew waterfall…

        unique and beautiful…

    Any man of principle is going to encounter places where he’s not welcome. I can tell you this much, I’ve been thrown out of much nicer places than Great American Ballpark completely sober.

  13. darman55 - Jun 13, 2014 at 5:40 PM

    “Deranged Dodger Fan….” No need to go any further.

  14. twpguy1964 - Jun 13, 2014 at 6:38 PM

    Puig sucks! Tell Tony too come see me about that comment ANY TIME!

  15. bkool37 - Jun 13, 2014 at 11:36 PM

    With all the recent shootings lately hopefully they make sure this guy gets help and BTW why isn’t this article posting a photo of this guy so we know who to watch out for.

  16. musketmaniac - Jun 14, 2014 at 12:18 PM

    lol, not many. but there are13 million people in Ohio, only 1.9 in West Virginia. that math has me winning this argument, easily.

  17. bengalhoel - Jun 14, 2014 at 7:06 PM

    Its funny because in Ohio this guy is considered a psycho , but in West Virginia , he is just one of the regulars.
