Ravens Fan Faces Charges After Rushing The Field; Already Banned By O’s For Doing The Same Thing
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Ravens fan is facing criminal charges after rushing the field during a break in Sunday night’s game.
Mark Harvey, 26, jumped out of the stands shortly before halftime. He was then tackled by security, handcuffed and taken to jail.
If Harvey looks familiar, that’s because he ran onto the field at Camden Yards on Opening Day in his underwear and a cape. The Orioles banned him for life.
And reportedly Harvey had a little help with his costume this time around from a big talk show host: Ellen DeGeneres!
Baltimore Sports Report says after watching Harvey on Opening Day and hearing he was a fan of hers, she apparently gave him a white and blue cape with her face on it.
“I don’t want to encourage behavior like that, but I will enable it,” DeGeneres told viewers in an April show.
He reportedly wore that Sunday night when he took the field at the Ravens/Patriots game.
