'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.

Wonder how many times L.A.P.D. has to put up with the drunken ego's of Follywood. Bet it wasn't his fault either. Lol Bet he owe's the Dodgers, the City of L.A., and, especially the L.A.P.D. a great big apology for being such a ego-driven low class troublemaker.
