One of the most-talked about plays from the Lions’ 24-6 exhibition loss to Cleveland on Thursday — the streaker who ran onto the field in the third quarter.
The pasty, white man ran across the field and dropped his skimpy drawers once he reached the end zone.
The man, who was not identified, was tackled twice by Lions running back Joique Bell, and then a third time by a security guard.
Lions’ linebacker Ashlee Palmer said it was one of those things that you can’t “unsee.”
“It was not an enjoying sight,” he said with a laugh. “But the guy that tackled him at the end of it, that was a nice form tackle, man. Probably could use him.”
97.1 The Ticket’s Tony Ortiz also got an eyeful of the action.
“Pretty impressive run from the stands. He dashed past two cops to make it onto the field,” T.O. said via email. “Unfortunately, when I first saw him, he had just pulled down his underwear, revealing his hairy white butt… Felt bad for the policemen who had to tackle him. Pretty sure one got a face full of cheek as he took him to the ground. Not enough showers in the world to remove that stigma.”
It took seven officials to subdue the man, using a swift kick to the groin to finally bring him down.
The action was caught on camera by a fan who posted the video to Instragram. Unfortunately, the video doesn’t start rolling until after Bell got caught up in the action.
