By now if you haven’t seen the Astros fan evading security during his insane escape from Minute Maid Field, you’ve been in a coma. Kevin Wayne Crabtree was the guy behind the streak and has pretty much raised the bar to the next level for future fans running on playing fields. But what was behind such a stunt? Why attempt something that would end with an arrest? There’s a very good reason from Crabtree and he told the Houston police department it was a bet with friends. Remain calm, ladies, our researchers are efforting Facebook accounts to see if Harrison Ford is single.
Crabtree was celebrating his 27th birthday when he made a bet, stating he would run on the field during the game and not get caught by police, a Houston Police Department spokeswoman said. When he ran on the field, he ignored officers ordering him to stop.
His court appearance is scheduled for May 20.
As of this writing, 1.6mm+ viewers have watched Crabtree’s escape on YouTube. 2,700 have commented. According to the sleuths at The Smoking Gun, Crabtree is a personal trainer and a former outfielder for Stephen F. Austin.
Dude has even done a Groupon-like coupon thing where you can train with him. This streaking thing might have been the best business decision Kev has ever made.
