Fan arrested after diving in Kauffman Stadium fountain to retrieve Adam Dunn's 400th homer

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Saturday night, White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn clubbed the 400th home run of his career. An overly zealous White Sox fan dove into the Kauffman Stadium fountain pool in left-center field to get the ball. Get it he did, temporarily, but he was stripped of the ball when he was taken under arrest by stadium authorities, reports

This isn't a surprise. I was just in Kansas City last month for the All-Star Game, and there are signs all over those fountains warning fans to stay out. A few signs specifically say that those who get in the water will be arrested and prosecuted "to the fullest extent of the law."

Here's the highlight, where you can easily see the Kevin Youkilis jersey take a dive into the drink. At the end of the video, you can also see authorities taking him away.
