You're going to do all this and not turn your phone sideways? (via Deadspin)
At last night's Reds vs. Cubs game, a fan filmed himself running across the field because he lost a bet. Despite the fact that 19-year-old Justin Buchanan is now part of the club of attention-seeking idiots who have rushed the field at a major sporting event, his plan was actually pretty well thought out. Except for the final step in which he broadcasted it to the entire world, that is. He had planned an escape route and even researched the consequences of interrupting a game, which, according to a local Indianapolis news site, can range from a lifetime ban from the park to actual criminal charges. Here's the footage from the stands:
He stopped to say "What's up" to Reds player Billy Hamilton, who, according to Buchanan, didn't have the "nicest" response. When he reached the end of the field, he tossed his phone up the wall, scaled it, grabbed the phone, and ran off. Here's a closer look at the escape:

He made it to his car without getting tackled, and safely drove home. He hasn't heard anything from law enforcement, despite the fact that the video went viral and he gave an interview about it. According to Justin, he doesn't see what the big deal is:
“I mean, I did it, you've got to live with the consequences, but I don't think I'll necessarily regret it [...] I don't think I'll be in all that much of trouble, at least I hope not. I think it was just kind of something fun to do."
Here is the footage. It sort of sounds like he's saying "Yes sir!" at the 18-second mark.
He should've used a GoPro.
