Fan Runs Onto Field At All-Star Game After Getting 1,000 Retweets

Fan Was Arrested, Charged With Interfering With Professional Sporting Event

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There might not have been a ton of action on the field during Tuesday night’s MLB All-Star Game — the American League won a pitching duel, 3-0 — but spectators at the park were entertained when a fan sporting a Robinson Cano shirt ran onto the field and was taken down by security guards.

He’s known as @MasoneDylan on Twitter, and prior to the Midsummer Classic he tweeted that if he received 1,000 retweets he would “run across the field.”

Sure enough, he got the 1,000 retweets necessary.

The fan tweeted prior to the game up until he pulled the stunt on Tuesday night. His tweets ranged from pictures of text-message exchanges with his mother to proclamations that he was going to go through with the stunt. He also expressed nervousness about the potential consequences.

Here are some of his tweets:

The fan was arrested and charged with interfering with a professional sporting event, the New York Police Department confirmed.
