Busch 'Laser Pointer-Gate': Police Say "No Additional Movement" On More Charges
A Creve Coeur teenager faces charges in the city of St. Louis and a Mercy Health System executive has resigned as a result of the incident last week.
One week after an executive with Mercy Health System stepped down over her connection to the alleged use of a laser pointer in the hospital chain's Busch Stadium suite, St. Louis Police say there is "no additional movement" on further charges in the case.
Eric Bogard, 17, of Creve Coeur, was arrested last week and charged with municipal violations that could result in fines or jail time after he was accused of disrupting last Monday's Cardinals-Giants game with a laser pointer.
Bogard's attorney declined further comment on the case when reached by phone Thursday afternoon.
At the time of the incident, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that police would ask prosecutors to review the conduct of a woman in the suite who was confrontational with authorities investigating the suite.
Marie Glancy, Mercy's Chief Advocacy Officer who was in the suite at the time of the incident, resigned her post late last week.
St. Louis City Spokeswoman Kara Bowlin told Patch Thursday that according to the City Attorney's Office, police have not presented anything beyond the case against Bogard for consideration.
