Father, daughter receive sentence for involvement in PNC Park brawl



PITTSBURGH - A Greensburg father and daughter were sentenced Tuesday for their involvement in a fight with PNC Park security last year.

According to police, a PNC Park security guard was escorting 21-year-old Rachel George out of the ballpark for smoking when her boyfriend assaulted the security guard and ran away. George then jumped on the security guard’s back, according to the criminal complaint.

Officials said George’s father, 51-year-old Christopher George, also joined the fight. Police said the security guard’s hand got caught in a fence, and his left middle finger was ripped off.

Rachel George pleaded guilty to two counts of simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. 

The judge sentenced her to 30 days house arrest and gave a two-year ban from PNC Park. 

Her lawyer, Phil DiLucente, said she doesn’t plan on going back. 

George’s father, Christopher George, also pleaded guilty to simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. 

The judge sentenced him to two years probation and a two-year ban from PNC Park.

The security supervisor, who ultimately had to have the tip of his finger amputated because of what happened, made a witness statement right before the judge gave both sentences. 

Channel 11’s Brittny McGraw reported that the George’s were also ordered to pay more than $28,000 in restitution.
