According to a report out of the Treasure Coast News, a Colorado woman was arrested at the Mets spring training facility in Port St. Lucie last month after officials found her milling around the complex on at least two different occasions, both times asking about Tim Tebow. The woman, identified as Michelle Marie Thompson, was first spotted on the morning of February 26—the same day Tebow arrived in camp—and she hung around all day until Mets officials reported her to the police later that evening. Then things got a little uncomfortable.

An officer asked the woman for her driver's license and noticed a small sticker on the back that stated "I (heart symbol) Jesus/Tim Tebow."

When asked why she was there, Thompson said she was there to see Tebow. When asked why she wanted to see him, Thompson said she and Tebow were in a relationship.

The officer asked her what kind of relationship she was in with Tebow, and Thompson said she didn't feel it was appropriate to answer that question.

When the officer asked again if the relationship was friendly, platonic, romantic or matrimonial, Thompson giggled and said "all of the above."


Mets officials just wanted her gone from the property, so police told her to go back to her car and leave the stadium, and the county altogether. Two days later she was back on the property and the Mets again called police. She was then arrested and charged with trespassing. According to the News, she was still in jail Friday on $750 bail.
