A 20-year-old has been charged with three misdemeanors for sprinting across Progressive Field during the Indians' 8-2 loss to the Houston Astros on May 24.

Cleveland.com reports that Callen Tommasone, of Mentor, has been charged with criminal trespass on a place of public amusement, obstructing official business and resisting arrest. He has pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanors and has been released on a personal bond.

Tommasone was a wily prankster. Wearing Francisco Lindor's number 12, he leaped from the right-field stands during a stoppage in play, ran across the outfield, and exited via the left-field stands and then out of the stadium through the left-field gate.

When police apprehended him after a brief downtown chase, Tommasone didn't reveal his name, according to the police. He also didn't have his wallet on him.

Via the police report, the officers asked Tommasone why he wasn't carrying personal identification and Tommasone replied, "I gave it to a friend because I was going to run on the field."
