KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A Kansas City Royals fan is in legal hot water after she jumped into the fountains Monday night at Kauffman Stadium.

Jessica McCoy, 25, of Des Moines, IA, has been charged with trespassing, resisting arrest and solicitation.

She was taken from the stadium in handcuffs and kept overnight in a detention facility. She reportedly is set to be released early Tuesday afternoon.

Signs posted around the stadium alert fans to not go in the fountains.

A video posted on YouTube shows McCoy appearing to have some sort of drink in her hand at the time.

Kansas City police said the solicitation charge came after McCoy propositioned officers in a vain attempt to get out of the municipal citations.

There is no official word on whether McCoy has children or not, but #fountainmom is trending worldwide on Twitter. The story has gone viral on various sports and social media websites.

Toby Cook, a spokesman for the Royals, said in addition to being ejected from Kauffman, McCoy faces a possible ban of an undetermined length. He emphasized the safety concerns about someone jumping into the iconic fountains.

"It's really dangerous as well as trespassing," Cook said in an email to KCTV5.

The Royals won 13-0 Monday night and play the Minnesota Twins again Tuesday night.

    It's no fun getting a pay raise only to have it eaten up by an increase in your bills, which is what's happening with federal tax reform in Louisiana. If you noticed a small increase in your pay check from federal tax reform, it may be fleeting as state taxes go up. The Louisiana constitution says if federal taxes go down, state taxes go up. But tax preparer Jessica Fisher, who is an area manager for Jackson Hewitt, says the offset should still leave you with a little somethin...
