Statement from #Mets CEO Fred Wilpon: “We are thrilled that Joe Torre has been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Joe had distinguished himself throughout his career both on an off the field. His records and accomplishments as a player and manager speak for themselves. All of us at the Mets salute and congratulate Joe.”
NBC Connecticut reports that a West Haven man, 32-year-old Aryn Leroux, has been arrested for threatening the New York Mets players, organization and staff members, as well as Citi Field itself. And yes Mets fans, it’s who you think it is.
Leroux, charged with threatening in the second degree and breaching the peace, is the one and only Mets Twitter troll known as Dan Tanna (@danXtanna). Over the past season, “Tanna” had run-ins with Mets players publicly and not-so publicly, making specific threats towards players, staff and the ballpark. While I won’t say specifically what the threats were, know that they were serious enough to warrant police attention.
"Tanna", who’s Twitter name is xmulderx, can be traced back to an e-mail address of the very same name. And who is that e-mail registered to? You guessed it—Aryn Leroux.
So there you go, Mets Twitter. One less troll—a specifically vile one—is done.
