UPDATE: Eric responded to TMZ's report on Twitter: "i did NOT get kicked out of the Dodgers game last night. did i get escorted to the top of the stairs by security? yes. yes i sure did."
According to TMZ, Modern Family's beloved gentle giant, Eric Stonestreet, got into a "verbal altercation" with a St. Louis Cardinals fan at last night's L.A. Dodgers game. A witness told TMZ the fan fight never escalated to the point of threats, but security escorted Eric out of his seat. The other guy was escorted out too, but apparently he was not famous enough to merit his own mention.
The fight reportedly started after the Cardinals fan heckled a Dodgers player. Sounds like Eric was defending his home team. Jay Pritchett would be proud.
Check out TMZ’s brief video with some of the action.
