By now, you've probably seen the pictures that a man named Scott Heins took after sneaking into the construction site where the new U.S. Bank Stadium is being built. The pictures are really quite spectacular, all things considered.

And the chances that such a feat will be duplicated have now decreased significantly.

In the wake of the security breach, it has been announced that security at the stadium site will be increased so that such an incident will likely not happen again. Mortenson Construction, the company that is building the stadium, and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, are also seeking to bring legal action against Heins for his illegal entry into the stadium.

I'm not sure how much liability the folks from Mortenson could have potentially faced if something had happened to Heins during his adventure at the construction site, but everyone involved has to cover their tails on this one to prevent such a thing from potentially happening again.

On a related note, when we get closer to Training Camp, we're going to get our own look at the new stadium, and hopefully we'll have a bunch of pictures as well. But we'll have more on that in a day or two.
