The year's only days old but already we have a frontrunner for Hortacultural Crime of the Year.
Michael Vite, come on down!
He da Man after sneaking into Wrigley Field the other day via a construction site and stealing some of the fabled ivy off the outfield wall. Apparently a complete set of Felix Pie or Jeff Samardzija bobbleheads just isn't enough for some people.
Alas, Vite did not quite get away clean. Nabbed as he made his getaway, he was arrested on charges of criminal trespass.
His only request (not really): If jailed, would someone be so kind as to water his plants?
