Watch: 'Jungle Bird' Runs Onto Field, is Destroyed by Washington Nationals Security

Saturday May 17th, 2014

If the name 'Jungle Bird' sounds familiar, it's likely because you recall him disrupting Bob Costas' 2012 US Open Championship interview with Webb Simpson.

Well, he was at it again on Friday night, this time during the 9th inning of Friday’s Mets-Nationals game.

In Washington, D.C. to increase awareness regarding illegal deforestation, Andrew Dudley made his way onto the field and promptly began to run the bases as the Nationals crowed cheered him on. Shockingly, it took quite some time for security to nab Jungle Bird, but once in their grasp, they certainly laid down the law. After crossing home plate, Dudley appeared to give himself up but security wasn't having it, seemingly putting him in a modified headlock before slamming him to the ground as players from both teams (and the home plate umpire) watched the action unfold just feet away.
