Texas A&M-Texas baseball game interrupted by streaker – who is on Aggies cross country team
A freshman member of the Texas A&M cross country team interrupted the Aggies' baseball team's game against rival Texas on Tuesday.
According to the Houston Chronicle, police arrested Spencer Werner, 19, on charges of criminal trespass and disorderly conduct/exposure.
Werner — wearing only compression shorts, gloves and a Darth Maul mask — ran onto the field during the fifth inning while holding a "Longhorns suck" sign with "Trump 2024" painted on his chest.
He jettisoned the sign while scampering through the infield and then exposed his hindquarters to a startled Blue Bell Park crowd while sprinting toward the outfield.
Werner concluded his uninvited fun run by climbing over the center field fence, where the authorities were waiting to apprehend the rogue streaker.
The No. 19-ranked Texas Longhorns won the game, 5-2.
