In the ninth inning a fan grabbed the hat off Dodger pitcher Chad Kreuter's head in the bullpen. The incident triggered a bizarre scene as the Dodgers came to their bullpen's aid and got into a scuffle with several Chicago fans. The game was delayed for more than 10 minutes after the hat was taken and Kreuter was apparently hit by a so-called fan. Three fans were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. They were released from jail and now face an June 19th court date.
