Prosecutors charged Manuel Garcia with misdemeanor assault following his alleged attack on Boylan and his girlfriend was also arrested for allegedly preventing police from getting to her man.

Garcia got banned for life for his actions and it’s unclear if his girlfriend his banned as well. The incident comes a week after an Astros fan was arrested for allegedly slapping a Yankees fan during Game 2 of the American League Championship Series.
