Cops Tell Different Tale About Fan Who Was Ejected Over "God Bless America"

The above video is of Yankee Stadium God-dismissing, anti-American Brad Campeau Laurion who enlightened us (and, seemingly, hundreds of other media outlets) about being forcibly escorted out of Yankee Stadium Tuesday night after he tried to go to the bathroom during the traditional 7th-inning rendition of "God Bless America." Laurion contends he wasn't doing anything except being a little unpatriotic. The NYPD, however, has a different recollection and shared it with the Daily News:

"A police spokesman said Campeau-Lampion was thrown out because he was "standing on his seat cursing, using inappropriate language and acting in a disrespectful manner while reeking of alcohol."

As of now, the Yankees have still yet to comment on Laurion's claims and he still is intent on pursuing legal action against the team. The person who will ultimately get the blame for all of this?
