UPDATE - Video: Naked pitch invader gets nailed by tackle/kick combo

Having his jocks around his ankles didn’t help his chances of escape either...

Pre-season NFL games make pre-season GAA or soccer games look like must-sees. With the big name players getting little or no game time for fear of injury, the games are little more than glorified practice sessions.

That said, massive crowds show up for them, so starved are they of action (over 70,000 turned up at a pre-season game by the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens this week) but not every fan can deal with the boredom, like this guy.

Unimpressed with what the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions were offering, and perhaps with a beer or two on board, this man ran onto the field and made it all the way across to the other side. But his final act of disrobing left his jocks around his ankles, setting him up perfectly to be taken down by two members of security, one with a solid tackle, the other with a rather more cowardly kick.

It worked, and the naked invader was subdued. His fate since remains a mystery.

UPDATE - Since the time of writing we've found footage of the streaker's final moments before running out onto the pitch, which features him being tackled by a Detroit Lion. It's pretty funny.
