Three moves and this girl is out. Police say Nicole Kovalsky struck out at CoolToday park in North Port the place she hopped a fence onto the sphere and began operating round.
New 911 audio provides listeners a entrance row seat to the evening again in March.
“The Atlanta Braves stadium in North Port. We have somebody kind of just walking around in the back,” a safety guard mentioned. ” She’s operating now. She’s within the again fields at the moment.”
The dispatcher requested the guard if it appeared like Kovalsky was once intoxicated.
He responded, “she’s something.” Then chatting with the trespasser without delay, “Maam, you can’t go on the field. You might think it’s funny but it’s not, you’re going to jail today.”
When North Port police arrived, Kovalsky admitted she’s in legislation enforcement too – a deputy with Charlotte County.
Paramedics evaluated her for a baker act on scene, however mentioned Kovalsky didn’t meet the factors so as an alternative she was once charged for her crimes.
“The unusual behavior, although it is bizarre, does not necessarily meet the criteria of being baker acted,” Dave Thomas mentioned, legislation enforcement knowledgeable from FGCU.
An inside affairs record from CCSO stories they’d been looking to get Kovalsky to come back in for a ‘fit for duty evaluation’ weeks prior to the ballpark travel as a result of an incident that happened all the way through coaching. However, Kovalsky had refused and went off the radar, not able to be reached.
“It’s tragic that it happened this way but at some point you can’t make somebody do something they don’t want to do,” Thomas mentioned. “You don’t know if it’s a mental health history, you don’t know if it’s substance abuse history, or you don’t know if it’s a combination.”
Once arrested, Kovalsky was once fired from CCSO.
