Sean Hagan gets 80 hours of service
PHILADELPHIA -- A Philadelphia teenager who ran onto the field wearing a full-body red spandex suit during a Phillies game last month has been sentenced to community service.
Seventeen-year-old Sean Hagan was sentenced to 80 hours of community service Thursday in Family Court.
He pleaded guilty to charges that he ran onto the outfield at Citizens Bank Park during a game against the Atlanta Braves.
Security guards apprehended Hagan after Braves left fielder Matt Diaz tripped him. Later, Hagan walked out of custody dressed in the costume he was wearing when he ran onto the field.
Hagan's parents have apologized for his actions and said he would be punished.
In May, police used a stun gun to subdue another teenager who ran onto the field at a Phillies game.
