Video: Astros fan runs on field, escapes cops...temporarily

Man later arrested after scaling several walls to elude security

By PoliceOne Staff

HOUSTON, Texas - A fan sprinted onto the field at a Houston Astros game, leading police on one of the more bizarre ballpark chases ever caught on tape.

The unique characteristics of Minute Maid Park played a role in the escape, as the man first sprinted up the hill in center field, then climbed up a wall into a grassy hill area, and then clambered over train tracks to exit the field.

Fortunately, according to ESPN's Adam Rubin, the man was arrested outside the stadium.

Check out the video below.
