Police Arrest Man For Fighting At Exhibition Game At AT&T Park

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A man was arrested at AT&T Park on Thursday night for allegedly kicking another man during a fight at the San Francisco Giants’ exhibition game against the Oakland A’s.

Trinidad Ortega Juarez, 19, of Millbrae, was arrested following an attack reported at about 10 p.m. Thursday in the arcade area of the ballpark, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.

Officers responding to a report of a fight saw a large crowd congregating, then saw someone on the ground and Ortega Juarez allegedly kicking him in the head, Shyy said.

He was taken into custody on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and a probation violation, while the 25-year-old victim was treated at the scene for swelling and cuts, according to Shyy.

The A’s defeated the Giants 7-3 in the game, the first of three between the two teams to close out spring training.

The teams will play again at AT&T Park at 7:15 p.m. today, then in Oakland at O.co Coliseum for the final preseason game at 1:05 p.m. Saturday.
