Attorney: Streaker at Browns game 'got caught up in the excitement'

Browns fans are long overdue for a winner. Passing the time until that fateful day can lead to all sorts of strange behaviors. Like, say, by taking your clothes off and running around the field.

This happened Thursday with predictable results: The streaker was absolutely destroyed by a security guard as he tried to make his escape. It was an inevitable as another losing season for the Browns (or maybe this year is the exception).

That poor, naked sap you see above is 20-year-old Anthony Saveriano and he has an explanation for his, ahem, exploits.

"He got caught up in the excitement," Saveriano's attorney, Fred Crosby said, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "He's a good kid."

Crosby added that alcohol didn't play a major factor in Saveriano's decision to streak, just that there hadn't been much excitement on the field at that point. (Did Saveriano not see what Brandon Weeden was doing to the Lions? That's about as exciting as things have been for the Browns since Derek Anderson was winging the ball all over the yard back in '07.)

Saveriano declined comment after his court appearance, and he's scheduled to return to court on Sept. 10 to be screened for a first-offender's program. On the upside, at least he didn't get bodyslammed by James Harrison.
