A Cincinnati Reds fan invaded Great American Ballpark field on Tuesday night, performed a backflip in front of a police officer, and was promptly shocked with a Taser and arrested.

William Hendon, 19, was booked into the Hamilton County Jail in Ohio on a felony criminal trespass charge and a misdemeanor obstructing official business charge, according to jail records.

The incident was caught on video and shared to social media.

The man “did knowingly run onto the Reds playing field during the game without permission to do so,” an officer wrote in a criminal complaint, according to Fox 19 Cincinnati. Another document accused Hendon of impeding an officer’s lawful duties with purpose as he tried to run from the officer who was behind him.

Hendon is scheduled to make his first court appearance Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, the Reds fell to the Cleveland Guardians, 5-3.
