VIDEO: Streaker taken down after running onto field during Browns vs. Lions preseason game

CLEVELAND - With the first-team units out of the game, it was a streaker who caught fans' attention during the second half of the Browns' second preseason game Thursday night at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Video shot by NewsChannel5 (which we have censored) shows the exposed fan reveling as he runs across the field into the end zone.

"I saw the Lions guy going after him," Browns linebacker Paul Kruger said, referring to Lions running back Joique Bell who reportedly took a couple shots at the streaker, who kept going.

"The guy had a lot of energy," Kruger said.

Cleveland police said the man, 20-year-old Anthony Saveriano, was arrested. He was later charged with criminal trespassing and public indecency, which are both misdemeanors.

Saveriano will not have to appear in court on Saturday if he posts his $154 bond by midnight, court officials said.

Users on social media also captured the man's mad dash.

Their next game is Saturday, Aug. 24 in Indianapolis.
