Two Arrested After Breaking Into Wrigley Field
Two Pennsylvania men were arrested overnight at Wrigley Field after they managed to squeeze through metal security bars, climb through a window and tried to steal ivy from the stadium, authorities said.
Kevin Burge and Steven Gudknecht, both 25, were charged with misdemeanor trespassing when they were arrested at Wrigley about 3:45 a.m., police said. Team security spotted them on closed-circuit cameras, entering the stadium, and when police arrived, the two were “found on the field, as they were trying to get ivy,” said Chicago Cubs spokesman Julian Green.
The men are from Chalfont Pennsylvania, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli. The Philadelphia Phillies are in Chicago to play a series against the Cubs at the field at Addison and Clark Streets.
