A Milwaukee man has been charged with breaking into the Milwaukee Brewers’ Miller Park Stadium and driving a tractor across the field.
According to a criminal complaint reported by Channel3000.com, Milwaukee police officers received a complaint and found the defendant, 40-year-old Keyon A. Lambert, outside of the stadium.
A security guard said he found Lambert inside the stadium on the field level. After seeing the security guard, Lambert allegedly patted his hip and said, “I got a piece for you,” leaving the guard to think Lambert might be armed.
Lambert proceeded to get on a tractor and drive it across the field, repeatedly raising and lowering the front-end bucket.
All told, Lambert may have caused an estimated $40,000 in damages to the field.
In a statement, Lambert admitted to entering the park after finding a door unlocked. He also said he had never driven a tractor before, so he got in to write his name in cursive with the tractor tires, but it moved too slow.
Lambert has been charged with one count of criminal damage to property and one count of disorderly conduct. If guilty, he could be sentenced to a maximum of three years and nine months in jail or a fine of $11,000.
