LOS ANGELES (CBS) — TMZ.com reported  “Modern Family” actor Eric Stonestreet was asked to leave Dodger Stadium Saturday after he and a St. Louis Cardinals fan got into a verbal altercation.

The Cardinals fan was also asked to leave.

Stonestreet, who turned 41 last week, plays Cameron, the clown-loving, flamboyant half of a gay couple on the popular ABC sitcom.

He supposedly said something to the other man after the Cardinals fan heckled a Dodgers player, TMZ.com reported.

TMZ said the verbal altercation never escalated to the point where either man threatened the other.

TMZ updated their story later to say Stonestreet tweeted: “i did NOT get kicked out of the Dodgers game last night. did i get escorted to the top of the stairs by security? yes. yes i sure did.”
