'Modern Family' Star

ESCORTED OUT

of L.A. Dodgers Game

9/17/2012 3:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0916_stonestreet_tmz_video"Modern Family" star Eric Stonestreet was escorted out of his seat at last night's Los Angeles Dodgers game after he allegedly got into a verbal altercation with a St. Louis Cardinals fan. 

According to a witness, Stonestreet said something to the Cardinals fan after the guy heckled a Dodgers player. The two exchanged words, but we're told it never escalated to the point where either threatened the other in any way. 

In the video, you can see Stonestreet and the fan exchanging words before security eventually came over and asked Stonestreet to leave. The guy who Stonestreet appeared to be arguing with was asked to leave as well. 

Stonestreet was later seen in the hallway, talking to security staff.

Calls to Stonestreet's rep were not returned. A rep for the Dodgers tells TMZ that Stonestreet was not ejected from the stadium and, after speaking to security, was allowed to return to his seat.

FYI -- The Dodgers won the game in dramatic fashion, scoring two runs in the bottom of the 9th (with 2 outs) to beat the Cards.

Go Blue.

I was at the game and sitting very close and this is not accurate. The other guy actually was in the face of an elderly usher because he wouldn't let the guy's friends jump to other seats. The guy got belligerent and in this poor little old guy's face, and Eric Stonestreet stood up for him.

Sounds like a mountain made out of a mole hill. Since there was nothing but words exchanged, I don't see the issue, nor do I really care. Love you Eric!

It was a big misunderstanding. Someone who didnt know John candy was dead thought Eric was the late actor. Eric become highly insulted because he was later over heard saying that he is way skinnier then John Candy was. These celebs and there weight

Gee... Lemmee guess... Stonestreet was allowed to go back in as soon as he explained to security that he was a celebrity... while the non-famous person was shown the door. It's a great life to be famous in LA.
