Indiana man accused of trespassing at Cincinnati Reds game

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 (http://cin.ci/1Oq7Qdw ) 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.
