Woman arrested after allegedly trying to set fires in Royals' ballpark

A woman was arrested at Kauffman Stadium early Wednesday after allegedly trying to set fires in the park, according to KCTV 5.

Police arrived at the Kansas City Royals’ park at 5 a.m. after security called about a woman who “unlawfully entered the stadium.”

The woman — 36-year-old Bridget L. Depriest — told officers she had been in the stadium since Tuesday morning. The Royals are currently on a road-trip playing the Los Angels Angels. During the time she was at the park, Depriest reportedly set three fires on the field, resulting in burn marks in the grass.


It was the first time anything at Kauffman Stadium was scorched this season.
