The lady was pinned to the concrete steps and arrested by many police officers, as seen by nearby spectators in the 500 level of the stadium.
According to CTV News, a lady and man were asked to leave the stadium after a violent incident with other fans. The lady then hit the officer in the face, cops claimed. No one was hurt.
In the footage, the lady seems to be pushed down the steps by a guy strolling behind her.
“The oddest thing is that he shoved her,” a spectator said later.
Const. Edward Parks told CBC News on Saturday that the guy is not facing prosecution.
The Blue Jays rallied for a 10-8 triumph against the Rangers, with Teoscar Hernandez scoring the winning run in front of a sold-out Rogers Centre.
The Blue Jays have to play the full 2020 season and most of 2021 in Dunedin, Fla., and Buffalo, NY, due to COVID-19 restrictions.v
