The man who police say threw a can of beer on the field at the Rogers Centre during the AL wild-card game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles has left his job at Postmedia, a spokeswoman confirmed.
Postmedia communications manager Georgia Sourtzis would not say if Ken Pagan was fired or if he resigned.
“We don’t discuss employee details,” Sourtzis said in a brief statement Monday.
Tyler Smith, Pagan’s lawyer, declined to comment when contacted by Global News.
Pagan worked as a sports copy editor at the organization’s Hamilton office.
He was charged with one count of mischief on Oct. 6 after surrendering to police. He is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 24.
The beer can barely missed Baltimore Orioles left fielder Hyun Soo Kim during the seventh inning of the wild-card game.
The incident garnered a lot of media attention and was widely shared on social media.
