How's that messing with the wrong guard?
Anyway, the Post reports 18 year old Garrett Morgan will be in a Queens courtroom "on the August day he was supposed to head to Clemson University for his freshman year — to answer for his run-in with retired NYPD cop Tom McKenna."
The Garden City teen, who is a Yankees fan, admitted to The Post he was drinking before Tuesday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Citi Field. He lost his cool after being booted by security, according to the criminal complaint.
When he stormed back up to the right-field gate with his fake ID and tried to re-enter, he came face to face with McKenna — who spent 30 years with the NYPD and worked on infamous cases, including the “Central Park Jogger” rape and the “Preppy Murder.”
“He told me, ‘You’ve got to step off,’ ” Morgan recalled, claiming he wasn’t allowed in because he bought a ticket on StubHub for the wrong date.
“I bought the wrong ticket,” he said. “I tried to explain that to the security guys, [but] things were really escalating quickly and [they] got angry really fast. They were like, do we have to call the police?”
Got that? 18 and drunk. Yankees fan who bought tickets for the wrong date. Fake ID. Shocked 'trying to explain' he had the wrong ticket wouldn't get him into CitiField...Clemson Student!
The Post continued:
Fearing he would miss out on the fun, the scatter-brained teen admittedly jumped a fence to sneak in — darting up an escalator before being spotted by guards.
“I saw the security guys, two of them at the top running toward me,” Morgan said. “I stopped and turned around and tried to run out.”
When he went back down the escalator, McKenna was waiting.
Morgan swung his arms at the guard — missing him entirely.
He then tackled McKenna and repeatedly punched him before being grabbed by cops and arrested, the complaint says.
So, what's his punishment?
Morgan, who was released on $1,000 bail, said he is now “in deep, deep trouble” and facing the wrath of people far worse than the police — Mom and Dad.
“My parents are really scared. My dad told me that I am very stupid. He’s disappointed. That’s why I’m washing the car,” he said.
“I’ve got to wash this car and when the other one comes back, I’m going to wash that one, too.”
If washing cars is the worst he gets for beating up, ahem, messing with the wrong 75 year old senior citizen, we have a problem NY.
