NY man ejected for going to bathroom during God Bless America

Queens man says he was booted from Yankee Stadium for heading to the bathroom while "God Bless America" was playing. Brad Campeau-Lampion, 29, said off-duty cops working Tuesday night's game against the Boston Red Sox ejected him when he got up from his seat and walked to the men's room just as the patriotic anthem began.

"The officer informed me that I had to wait until the song was over," Campeau-Lampion, an information technology director from Astoria who roots for the Red Sox, told the Daily News Wednesday. "I said, 'I don't care about 'God Bless America,'" he said. "Next thing I know he was pinning my arm behind my back."

Campeau-Lampion said two officers then escorted him from the upper deck out of the Stadium.

"I've never seen anyone handled like that unless they've thrown a punch," he said. "It was a complete overreaction."

The NYPD told a different story.

A police spokesman said Campeau-Lampion was thrown out because he was "standing on his seat cursing, using inappropriate language and acting in a disrespectful manner while reeking of alcohol."

Campeau-Lampion, who filed a complaint with the NYPD's Civilian Complaint Review Board and called the New York Civil Liberties Union for advice, denies he was drunk.

A call to Yankee Stadium wasn't returned yesterday, but the team began restricting fans movements during the song after 9/11 out of respect for U.S. troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

If he was drunk the would have put him in the tank right? Seems crazy to be kicked out for the reasons he claims but ppl get strange when you "disrespect the country" Not that he did that. Keep me informed on what happens.
