SO YOUVE BEEN ARRESTED AT A COLORADO ROCKIES GAME
March 26, 2012
For many people, attending a Colorado Rockies game may be the highlight of a summer. However, for some people misunderstandings or run-ins with other fans can lead to ejection or arrest when attending a Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field.
What to do if you get arrested at a Colorado Rockies Game at Coors Field
Whether you get arrested while at a Colorado Rockies game, or anywhere else, there a few things that you should always do. First, you should respectfully decline to make any statements to the police. There are many reasons to avoid talking to the police, which we have written about before. To summarize, usually the police get their best evidence in a case from admissions that defendants make. Many people feel that when they are a paying customer of the Colorado Rockies they should be given wide latitude in their behavior. Typically the first contact involving an incident at a game is made by stadium security rather than police. If you are able to cooperate with security and put the issue to rest you should. Remember, however, that once the police at Coors Field get involved they will usually treat a Colorado Rockies fan like any other arrest suspect. Once you have been contacted by the police if you do not comply with their instructions you may end up with more serious charges. While we understand that every Colorado Rockies fan would probably just like to be left alone to enjoy the game we encourage fans to cooperate with the police while respectfully declining to speak about an incident.
