    Fan who took ball from Favre sentenced to probation


    November 23, 2005
    CINCINNATI (AP) -- The fan who ran onto the field during a Bengals game and took the football from Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct and was placed on probation.

    Hamilton County Municipal Judge David Stockdale sentenced Greg Gall, 31, of Cincinnati, to 15 months' probation and 230 hours of community service. While on probation, he is banned from Paul Brown Stadium and the Reds' Great American Ball Park. He also was fined $200.

    Gall interrupted the final minute of Cincinnati's 21-14 victory over the Green Bay on Oct. 30 when he took the ball from Favre as the Packers were trying to tie the game.

    Prosecutors asked for jail time.

    "An example needs to be set and a message sent here," assistant Prosecutor Debbie Casey told the court. County Prosecutor Joe Deters wrote to Stockdale urging a jail sentence to deter "stupid acts like this."

    Gall's attorney, Scott Rubenstein, told the judge that Gall has suffered embarrassment and that his job is in jeopardy.

    "It's been a humiliating experience for him," Rubenstein said.

    Stockdale said he didn't want to use jail space on Gall, but admonished him: "Usually these kinds of antics are the province of 18- and 19-year-olds. You're 31."

    The judge also suggested that Gall might need alcohol counseling during his probation.

    Gall spoke in court only to agree that he understood his plea that resulted in a charge of resisting arrest being dropped. He declined comment afterward.

    besides if he'd waited then, with the way Favre is playing, the ball would have landed in his lap sometime during the game anyway ... :lol:
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    It's probaly a fair punishment for someone who was problay drunk and got dared to do it. Plus the move he put on the security you gotta give him some credit.

    If the judge was a Packer fan they would have given him the electric chair because he scared Brett! Madden would have volunteered to throw the switch!
