Mets fan who threatened team given 90-day suspended sentence

Saturday September 6th, 2014

Aryn Leroux, who made threats against the New York Mets on Twitter, was given a 90-day suspended sentence for disorderly on Thursday in Milford (Conn.) Superior Court,'s Adam Rubin reported on Friday citing the court clerk's office.

He will not serve prison time if he stays out of trouble for the next year, when the misdemeanor will be discharged, Rubin reports.

REPORT: Mets to shut down Matt Harvey after bullpen sessions

Leroux pled no contest to second-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace after he allegedly threatened team executives, players and coaches and made a "specific threat" to Citi Field, according to prosecutors.

The 43-year-old from West Haven, Conn., was arrested in October 2013.

Leroux is also barred from Citi Field and any contact with Mets personnel, and also ex-Met and current Dodger Justin Turner and Turner's girlfriend.

"He's satisfied and glad the case is over so he can move on with his life," Leroux's attorney, Frederick D. Paoletti Jr., told Rubin.
