CINCINNATI (AP) — A 19-year-old Indiana man accused of running across the field during a Cincinnati Reds home game has been arrested.
Justin Buchanan of Noblesville, Indiana, was arrested Thursday night at the Cincinnati police headquarters. He is charged with criminal trespassing on a place of public amusement, a first-degree misdemeanor.
Police say Buchanan entered the field at Great American Ballpark during the eighth inning of Wednesday night's game against the Chicago Cubs. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Buchanan recorded himself on his cellphone as he sprinted toward center field, then scaled a 10-foot fence before running out of the stadium.
Buchanan tells the newspaper he voluntarily turned himself in to police.
He could face 180 days in jail or a fine of up to $1,000 if found guilty.
