Mets fan, 18, charged with impersonating reporter--
The Suffolk County teenager loved the Mets so much that authorities say he posed as a reporter to get into Shea Stadium and talk with players.

Police arrested Leli, 18, on Friday night at Shea just before the start of the Mets' game against the Colorado Rockies game and charged him with impersonating a journalist, the Queens district attorney announced Saturday.

Prosecutors say Leli told Mets officials he worked for NBC Universal and showed a fake NBC employee identification card so he could get press credentials.

I'd say a majority of the MSM Journalists out there have been impersonating uh journalists.

6. Ignoring the sad joke for a moment,
He'll probably be charged with some violation of laws involving Impersonation and Trespassing.
