Wild Driver Terrorizes Stadium
Dec. 04, 1987
PITTSBURGH (AP) _ A man drove a car into Three Rivers Stadium on Thursday, wrecked the car and was kicking imaginary field goals when he was arrested, officials said.
''He just rode in here in a white station wagon and took half the wall off my office, a concrete brick wall, then he ran into a couple of our four-wheel- drive trucks with 70 to 80 gallons of nacho cheese,'' said Ted Winters, 62, of Pittsburgh, commissary manager.
The ride ended when the car crashed into a wire gate.
No one was hurt, said police spokeswoman Margaret Rizza said.
The driver, Tony E. Morelli, 30, of Wintersville, Ohio, underwent a psychiatric examination at St. John Hospital, where doctors released him in police custody, Ms. Rizza said.
Charges of reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and criminal trespass were pending, she said.
