    The former player, best known for being pushed by his coach, was arrested at the Phillies game on Wednesday.

    A former college basketball player who was shoved to the ground in a videotaped incident that led to his coach's resignation faces a felony theft charge after police say he swiped two beverages from a concession stand during a Phillies game.

    Police say 20-year-old Matthew Kravchuk swiped the drinks worth $15 from a Citizens Bank Park concession stand during Wednesday night's Phillies-Mets game. Authorities say Kravchuk faces a felony charge because of prior offenses.
