CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago police say two men who allegedly broke into Wrigley Field to try to take ivy are facing misdemeanor charges.
Officers were called to the ballpark just before 4 a.m. Sunday. Police say the men had allegedly entered the park by going through a barred window. Security guards at the field spotted them on a surveillance camera and called police.
Cubs spokesman Julian Green tells the Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/1dHJw9b ) that the men allegedly wanted to take some ivy from the outfield walls.
Chicago police say both men, in their 20s, are from Pennsylvania. They were each charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass.
Authorities say nothing was stolen or damaged.
