Last night, Jake Arrieta did the unthinkable – he threw his SECOND NO HITTER IN ELEVEN STARTS. I’m sorry for yelling, but I’m excited. In the kerfuffle that followed, as Jason Heyward put the squeeze on the 27th out, a young Cubs’ fan named Dylan Cressy rushed the field and joined the team’s celebration. We’ve seen it before, at Wrigley Field and at Soldier Field and at countless other stadiums, and we’ll no doubt see it again. And like we’ve said before, if Mr. Cressy had only downloaded the Law Offices of Laura Morask app (available in the iTunes and Google Play stores), he would have known that he was facing the prospect of being charged with a Class 4 Felony (in Illinois – not being a Cincinnatti criminal law attorney, we’re not sure what the penalty is in Ohio). Whether that would have stopped him, I guess we will never know.
Well, as the dust settled at the so-called “Great American Ballpark,” and handcuffs loosened from the wrists of Mr. Cressy, people across the city, from friends to ESPN 1000 radio personalities, conjectured whether it was “worth it,” asking what the penalty is. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to tweet out to David Kaplan just what penalties the man would face in Illinois, and he was gracious enough to Retweet that Tweet. And for that, Mr. Kaplan, we say thank you.
And to Mr. Kaplan, his viewers, and our readers, we say that if you download our app, you will never again be left wondering “was it worth it?” And if you should find yourself in a Chicagoland lockup, in need of criminal law defense, DUI defense, or representation at an administrative hearing, do not hesitate to contact us; one of our skilled attorneys will be happy to help guide you through the legal process. As always, Go Cubs Go!
