'Modern Family' StarESCORTED OUTof L.A. Dodgers Game

"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.
After our story went up, Stonestreet tweeted his version of events, saying, "i did NOT get kicked out of the Dodgers game last night. did i get escorted to the top of the stairs by security? yes. yes i sure did." He also spoke to our cameras on Sunday night (see below).
