Foul Ball Girl Busted For Underage Drinking
Do you remember the couple from Houston Astros game that gained national attention when boyfriend Bo “the Bailer” allowed a foul ball to hit his girlfriend, Sara Saco-Vertiz? It was one of many hysterical, offbeat stories that made headlines during the 2010 MLB season.
Saco-Vertiz was questioned in a South Florida night club on Saturday when an officer caught her drinking wine and was arrested for lying to police about her name, residence and age. The 19 year-old claimed to be 21-year-old Elissa Hamman of Buffalo, N.Y.
The officer tested her by asking if she was a fan of the Buffalo Sabres. Saco-Vertiz said she wasn’t and declared loyalty to the Dallas Cowboys. The officer warned her that if she was lying it would only make things worse, but she stuck to her fake identity. After a 10-minute exchange, she admitted she was lying and handed over proper identification.
She was then arrested for “obstruction by disguise” and was bailed out of jail nearly five hours later.
