Dodgers fan arrested for Cincy trespass

‘‘Apparently, he’s been obsessed with the Dodgers for a long time,’’ she said. She said she didn’t believe he had any weapons, but said another attorney would probably be appointed to represent him on the burglary count, which could carry prison time upon conviction.

Sexton is known online among Dodger fans as ‘‘Troy From West Virginia’’ for video postings about the team and its players, including his admiration for former Dodger relief pitcher Joe Beimel and coarse retorts to critics of young Dodger star Yasiel Puig.

There sure is a lot of crazy going around these days.

Joe Beimel's 1.77 ERA this year probably emboldened the guy.

from TFA:
In West Virginia, Putnam County court records show Sexton has been arrested several times on various charges, most recently drunken driving in April. He hasn't appeared in court yet on that charge. He pleaded guilty in January to making false calls to 911.
He pleaded no contest in 2009 in Putnam County Circuit Court to two counts of domestic battery after he allegedly held one of his sons upside down by an ankle during a football practice.

he should have his children turned right side up and taken away

Didn't see that coming! He's not your father's redneck.

Hey, I know a guy from West Virginia named Troy, but I always thought he was just obsessed with his 12 year old niece.
