Toronto fan ac­cused of can toss no longer em­ployed

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

The man sus­pected of throw­ing a beer can at Ori­oles out­fielder Hyun Soo Kim dur­ing a play­off game in Toronto is no longer em­ployed at the me­dia com­pany for which he worked. Ken Pa­gan was charged with mis­chief for al­legedly throw­ing the can in the sev­enth in­ning of the Amer­i­can League wild-card game. A Post­media spokes­woman said Mon­day that Pa­gan, a 41-year-old copy editor, had left the news or­ga­ni­za­tion. Ge­or­gia Sourtzis wouldn’t elab­o­rate on the cir­cum­stances of Pa­gan’s de­par­ture, but the com­pany had said ear­lier that it was con­duct­ing an in­ter­nal investigation fol­low­ing the beer-toss­ing in­ci­dent. Toronto po­lice de­tec­tive Pat Al­berga has said se­cu­rity cam­era footage inside the sta­dium helped iden­tify the sus­pect. A po­lice photo was widely dis­trib­uted on so­cial me­dia ear­lier this month. Pa­gan later turned him­self in to po­lice.
