Thompson was first questioned by New York Mets staff on February 26 in the late afternoon after she was caught hanging around the complex since the early morning, repeatedly asking questions about Tebow.

The woman also claimed her Colorado license address - which said she lived in Arvada, outside of Denver - wasn't current because she was living with Tebow at his home in Jacksonville.

Tebow, who played college football at Florida and in the NFL with the Broncos, Jets and Patriots, played his first spring training game with the Mets on Wednesday. When the officer further inquired whether she and Tebow were in a "friendly relationship, a platonic relationship, a romantic relationship or possibly a matrimonial relationship", Thompson responded, "All of the above". According to the arrest affidavit, Thompson returned to the Mets' complex two days later, despite being warned, and was subsequently placed under arrest for trespassing.

When an officer asked for her driver's license, they noticed a small sticker on the back that stated "I (heart symbol) Jesus/Tim Tebow". He now plays in the New York Mets farm system.

She was then held at the St. Lucie County Jail and held with $750 bail.

The trespass warning was explained to Thompson "two times to ensure clarity", according to the documents. The woman reportedly asked questions about Tebow, who arrived that day for camp.

Porcello caught a glimpse of him and thought Tebow was a Mets ball boy.

Officers instructed Thompson to get back into her vehicle and leave St. Lucie County. He played in the Instructional League at Port St. Lucie a year ago before reporting to the Arizona Fall League, where the southpaw former quarterback batted a paltry.194 in 19 games (12-for-62) for the Scottsdale Scorpions.
