The Most Polite Police/Fan-On-Field Confrontation Ever

Posted By on Fri, Aug 14, 2009 at 3:02 PM

Don't know exactly which game this was from, but the video is great. The Indians and some other team are busy in a fracas by home plate. A guy decides that would be the most opportune time to jump on the field.

He gets to center field, stands there with his shirt off, arms in the air — almost looking perplexed and disappointed that no cops are strenuously chasing after him.

A cop casually walks toward him. The guy gets on the ground and puts his hands behind his back.

So civilized.
