Not sure how I missed this one last week since I’m officially in charge of keeping track of drug smugglers trying to sneak goods into Atlanta Braves game. You might remember the Braves fan who was caught trying to mule cocaine into a game just a couple weeks ago. Now comes this Kevin Ross guy who went a little bit further and (allegedly) tried to bring 11 syringes and heroin into a game against the Marlins.
Kevin Sinclair Ross, 32, was arrested last week after he allegedly tried to get the backpack through security ahead of the Aug. 21 Braves game against the Miami Marlins. Authorities found 11 syringes and a gram of heroin in the bag, according to an arrest warrant obtained by AJC.com.
The Decatur man is facing charges of possession of heroin, a felony, and possession of a drug-related object, a misdemeanor. He is also charged with a probation violation, jail records show.
As if these two incidents weren’t enough of a black eye to the park, earlier in August a worker threatened to blow up the ballpark and shoot everyone there. I know, I know, I know…the heat this time of year in Atlanta makes people nuts, but there’s clearly something in the air at SunTrust that has people doing crazy things. Here they thought things would be bucolic in the burbs.
