Rowdy fans can spoil the fun for everyone. Case in point: A guy who stormed the field during a Chicago White Sox home game in 2003 may have gotten the team’s corps of ball girls fired. Not to mention getting the team sued. Former ball girl Amy Wilkes claims in a federal lawsuit that the team sacked all of its ball girls because the White Sox thought that fans were more likely to charge the field when women were present, the Chicago Sun-Times has reported. Wilkes claims that equals unlawful sex discrimination. “Wilkes was well qualified for her work, and performed in a competent and responsible manner,” her suit says. Wilkes said she was fired on the same day that spectator Eric Dybas stormed onto the field during a game between the White Sox and the Kansas City Royals. Wilkes said that White Sox General Manager Ken Williams told her that “recent well-publicized incidents involving unruly fans entering the field was the reason for the termination.” Burglar exposed Two things made Christopher Willever’s burglary of an Omaha, Neb., tobacco shop even worse-a lousy belt and his camera-loving backside. “You were an ass in every true sense of the word in this crime,” Douglas County District Judge Thomas Otepka said in sentencing the 22-year-old Willever to three to five years in prison. Willever had downed a bottle of rum and was too drunk when robbing the store to realize that his pants had fallen down, exposing his bottom to cameras that eventually fed the surveillance to TV shows across the country. “He was pretty humiliated and embarrassed,” his defense lawyer said.
