PNC Park Guard Loses Finger In Incident During Pirates Game

Thursday May 17th, 2012

A PNC Park security guard had his middle finger "ripped off at the second knuckle" during a melee at the Pittsburgh Pirates game Wednesday, according to numerous reports.

The finger is reported to have been re-attached following the incident, which began when a woman refused to leave the ballpark when asked and a fight broke out.

Allegedly, the woman was asked to leave the park because she was smoking, which is not allowed. Her boyfriend and father then instigated the fight with the guard.
