It's not always easy to be Tim Tebow.
Michelle Marie Thompson, of Arvada, Colo., was first noticed walking around the facility early on the morning of February 26, a Mets staffer said. According to a police report obtained the New York Daily News, she hung around the complex all day looking for Tebow and asking questions about him. After the police officer asked whether Thompson was in a "friendly relationship, a platonic relationship, a romantic relationship or possibly a matrimonial relationship?" She then gave authorities Tebow's Jacksonville address and said she lived with Tebow. According to the arrest affidavit, Thompson returned to the Mets' complex two days later, despite being warned, and was subsequently placed under arrest for trespassing.
In disturbing details contained in the incident/investigation report, of which the Daily News obtained a copy, Thompson arrived at the Mets' spring training site early in the morning of February 26.
When an officer asked for her driver's license, they noticed a small sticker on the back that stated "I (heart symbol) Jesus/Tim Tebow".
Thompson was given a trespass warning, and she left the property. When she asked where she should go, the officer told her it was probably best for her to leave St. Lucie County. She was transported to St. Lucie County Jail following the arrest and remains incarcerated, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office website. She was then arrested on February 28.
The 29-year-old Tebow won the 2007 Heisman Trophy at Florida.
"It was embarrassing what Tebow did before his first at-bat against righthander Rick Porcello, strolling toward the Red Sox' on-deck circle, clueless about where to go".
It has not been announced when or whether Tebow, who is in the Mets' minor-league camp, will play in another major-league exhibition game.
I don't have any hard evidence, per se-aside from the fact that the guy played varsity baseball in high school and half a year ago amassed 123 plate appearances in the Arizona Fall League.
