Kontos pinched

By

 

The Greek God of Pitching got busted:

Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Green Iguana Bar & Grill on Anderson Road just before 2 a.m. Management at the establishment told investigators that George Kontos attempted to re-enter the business after he was asked to leave.

The 21-year-old right-hander with the Tampa Yankees of the Class A Florida State League was again asked to leave. A HCSO deputy attempted to escort him from the premises but he kept pulling and was ultimately taken into custody.

No word if he had to resort to the “don’t you know who I am???” line. I sure hope he did though, for comedic purposes only.
