NY man faces charges in All-Star Game intrusion

NEW YORK (AP) - Prosecutors say a suburban New York man who ran onto the field during the All-Star game at Citi Field faces up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. The suspect allegedly did it on a Twitter dare.

Queens district attorney Richard Brown says 18-year-old Dylan McCue-Masone of Shirley, on Long Island, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Wednesday. He’s charged with interfering with a professional sporting event.

Brown says McCue-Masone allegedly initiated a dare to run onto the field if he received 1,000 responses to his tweet about it.

McCue-Masone also faces civil penalties of $5,000. He was released without bail and is due back in court Sept. 11.

He was represented by an attorney from Legal Aid, which did not immediately respond to a comment request Thursday.
