If you’re a big fan of baseball, you know just how poor the Toronto Blue Jays have been in the past season after beginning as serious MLB World Series contenders. They added many pieces to their puzzle that should have made them favorites to win the division and contend for the pennant.

However, they haven’t been able to stay healthy and have just flat-out underperformed this season. Sitting at 60-74 and last place in the AL East, the Blue Jays are already looking toward next season. With their eyes already on the 2014 season, some fans are extremely upset by the underperformance that has been this team all season long.

One fan took that frustration to a new level by running onto the field during a recent game. The police report from the officer that arrested the man is just priceless.

The report reads:

On May 5, 2013 at approximately 3:18 PM the Toronto Blue jays were surprisingly winning against the underrated Seattle Marriners. Our hapless Jays limped along to the bottom of the 8th inning. At one point, the Jays were considered World Series contenders. One can almost forgive the accused for his below described actions.

Luckily, the accused ran onto the field from level 100 and wasn’t forced to jump from the 500 level out of sheer frustration.

In any event, the accused before the court, Joseph [Redacted], in what can only be described as an attempt to inject some kind of spark in our listless Jays, ran onto the field “interrupting” the game, giving jays fans a brief respite from their season long agony.

The accused was subsequently placed under arrest to applause, transported to 52 Division where he was released on a Form 10/11.1.

I love how the officer’s hatred for the team’s performance is good enough to forgive the accused of running onto the field. This is one instance where being a police officer just got this guy a million cool points.

Job well done, Toronto police.
