Woman allegedly sets fires at Royals' park
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City police say they arrested a woman who is accused of setting several small fires while wandering around Kauffman Stadium.
Royals spokesman Toby Cook says that none of the fires caused significant damage at the stadium.
Police arrested 36-year-old Bridget DePriest early Wednesday and issued her a summons for trespassing and open burning.
The Kansas City Star reports that a stadium security guard called police after he noticed her on the field with a flashlight about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.
She told security she had been at the stadium since early Tuesday, but Cook said surveillance video indicated she wasn’t in the stadium that long.
Cook says Royals officials are trying to determine how the woman got into the stadium.
