CLEVELAND (AP) - An Ohio man accused of streaking across the field during a Cleveland Browns game will no longer be able to set foot at the team's stadium because its administration has banned him from the property.
Twenty-year-old Anthony Saveriano was notified Wednesday of the team's decision during his sentencing hearing in Cleveland Municipal Court.
Judge Lauren Moore found Saveriano guilty of a criminal trespassing charge and ordered him to clean up after tailgaters in the city's municipal lot for four games this season. He'll be on probation for one year and must pay a $200 fine and court fees.
Attorney Fred C. Crosby said Saveriano is remorseful about his actions.
Lions running back Joique Bell twice shoved down Saveriano during the Aug. 15 game before security tackled him.
