Wrigley Beer-Tossing Hand Job Still At Large (UPDATE) (UPDATE NO)S

I imagine that since we're very close to identifying the man who soaked Shane Victorino last night at Wrigley, that the Chicago PD are close as well.

One tipster claims that the man seen in the above photo — his "friend" — is the culprit but he's not ready to snitch yet as he waits to see if he'll come forward on his own. Or, hey, it might not be him and it's just another sinewy Cubs fan with manicured facial hair. The longer this individual remains unidentified, the more aggravated the police will become. Not the dude.

If he's caught, he'll be charged with assault, after Phillies centerfielder Shane Victorino filed charges after last night's game.

However, always the feisty Hawaiian,Victorino would seem to prefer street justice for his assailant:

"He's probably at home thinking 'I got away with it,'" Victorino said."I hope he gets the understanding, hey, you can't do stuff like that. I mean, if it happened in the streets, I don't think you'd be walking too far (without a reprisal). It's just not something you do."

Yes, in Victorino's hometown of Wailuku, thoughtless beer-tossers are dragged by the hair to the top of a volcano and pelted with coconuts. But we have rules here, hondo!

If anyone else has information on the identification of this dastardly individual, please feel free to drop a line to the Deadspin I-team..

UPDATE: A 21-year-old man has reportedly turned himself in. Details to come later tonight.
