Suspect in beer tossing no longer works for media company

Monday October 17th, 2016

TORONTO (AP) The man suspected of throwing a beer can at Baltimore outfielder Hyun Soo Kim during a playoff game in Toronto is no longer employed at the media company for which he worked.

Ken Pagan was charged with mischief for allegedly throwing the can in the seventh inning of the AL wild-card game.

A Postmedia spokeswoman said Monday that Pagan, a 41-year-old copy editor, had left the news organization. Georgia Sourtzis wouldn't elaborate on the circumstances of Pagan's departure, but the company had said earlier that it was conducting an internal investigation following the beer-tossing incident.

Toronto police detective Pat Alberga has said security camera footage inside the stadium helped identify the suspect.

A police photo was widely distributed on social media earlier this month. Pagan later turned himself in to police.
