The former Holy Family University basketball player at the center of a shoving incident that led to the resignation of the team's coach has been arrested on charges of stealing drinks at Citizens Bank Park.
Police say Matthew Kravchuk, 19, reached around the back of a concession stand and took two bottles of unspecified beverages during Wednesday night's Phillies-Mets game and tried to conceal them when he was confronted.
Police did not say what the bottles contained but said they cost a total of $15.
Kravchuk was taken to South Detectives and charged with retail theft.
Kravchuk gained national attention when a videotape showing him being pushed by then Holy Family coach John O'Connor was circulated widely.
Kravchuk was injured in the fall and the incident sparked a debate over whether O'Connor should be charged with an offense.
The District Attorney's Office decided it was not a prosecutable offense, but O'Connor resigned Feb. 24 after Kravchuk refused to accept his apology on nationally televised Good Morning America.
