MLB: Video shows Dodgers fan being pushed from stadium

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES Los Angeles Dodgers officials are reviewing a video posted on YouTube apparently showing a security guard push a fan from the stadium then kicking him and tackling him to the ground.

Dodgers spokesman Josh Rawitch says team officials are reviewing the video, shot Tuesday at the Dodgers season opener, and looking into the circumstances around the altercation.

In the video, several guards try to eject a fan from the stadium but he seems reluctant to leave. One guard then pushes him through a gate and appears to kick him. Several other security personnel rush out the gate and appear to handcuff him as he is on the floor.

Los Angeles police Capt. David Lindsay says officers are reviewing the tape.

Police arrested 132 people Tuesday, mainly for drinking.
