Frum took to Twitter to clarify the situation.
For record, husband wasn't actually tossed from game. Texas coach falsely accused him of mischief. Police saw it has way. Justice was served—@LindaFrum
David Frum, Sokolowski's brother-in-law and senior editor of The Atlantic, remarked on the controversy, prompting his sister to make light of the situation.
Can't leave him alone 😀 <a href="https://twitter.com/davidfrum">@davidfrum</a>: So apparently my brother in law was thrown out of the stadium on global TV...—@LindaFrum
In 2011, Sokolowski was appointed to the Order of Ontario for "his contributions to the arts, health care and education."
