A 20-year-old food service worker at Comerica Park in Detroit has been charged after a video was posted online that appeared to show him spitting on a pizza intended for customers during a Major League Baseball game.
The man was taken into police custody Sunday and his arrest “stems from a video going around,” said Officer Dan Donakowski, a spokesman for the Detroit Police Department.
The video appeared over the weekend and shows someone spitting on the pizza.
Comerica Park officials determined the video was recorded Friday, when the Detroit Tigers hosted the Kansas City Royals, WWJ-AM reported.
The head of security at Comerica Park reported the spitting incident to police on Friday, Donakowski told The Associated Press.
Charges against the man were being reviewed Monday, according to Maria Miller, a spokeswoman for the Wayne County prosecutor’s office. Crazy thing is, this probably happens more than we’d like to believe.
