Video: "Modern Family" Star Booted Out Of Dodgers Game [UPDATED]
Eric Stonestreet, best known for his role on "Modern Family," got booted out of the Dodgers game against the Cardinals last night.
A video captured the moment when a security team came to escort the actor (wearing a white shirt and a blue hat) out of the stadium. A witness told TMZ that Stonestreet got into a verbal altercation with a Cardinals fan who was heckling a Dodgers player. The video shows another man—we're guessing the heckler—who was escorted out by security as well.
The crowd erupted into cheers as Stonestreet was escorted out (we can't tell if this is related to the game going on or not). TMZ says Stonestreet's rep didn't return calls about the incident.
UPDATE 12:30 PM: Stonestreet says on Twitter that he says he wasn't kicked out of the game:

Stonestreet won an Emmy in 2010 for his role as Cameron Tucker on "Modern Family."
