Man accused of posing as Dodger on field

By | September 30, 2008

A man faces criminal charges for allegedly stealing a uniform from Dodger Stadium and posing as one of the team’s players.

Ronald Higgins pleaded not guilty to several charges Friday, including burglary and trespassing. The 47-year-old Higgins was arrested Wednesday morning after a security guard found him walking on the field in a Dodgers uniform and holding a glove with two balls. Higgins allegedly identified himself as a Dodgers player, but the guard recognized him from an earlier incident and called police. Prosecutors say Higgins’ clothes were later found in the bat boys’ locker room. It was not immediately clear where he got the uniform. If convicted, Higgins could spend nearly four years in state prison. –myway

In my world impersonating an officer might get you prison, say, if you shot someone while doing it… but impersonating a Dodger? Perhaps a psychiatric evaluation and some help. Four years in prison for being obsessed with an American dream? Let the man play. Who knows, he may be good.
