A law making it expressly illegal to interfere with a professional sporting event was passed by the city in 2003 following a disruptive incident involving fashion designer Calvin Klein.
Klein stepped onto the basketball court at Madison Square Garden in March 2003 to speak with player Latrell Sprewell while a Knicks game was in progress.
Martinez could face a year in jail and a $5,000 fine. I'm assuming that Martinez would face a punishment slightly less severe if convicted. Maybe he'll only be allowed to go to day games. Or only be able to watch games involving the Washington Nationals.
