"Red Man" Outta Jail, in Trouble With Mom & Dad

Bodysuit wearing Phillies field jumper now faces wrath of his parents



    Things likely didn't get much easier for 17-year-old Sean Hagan when he was released into his parents' custody Tuesday afternoon. His dad and mom said their son owed plenty of people an apology and that he would face "consequences" for his field jumping stunt at Monday's Phillies game. (Published Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2010)

    A red bodysuited Phillies fan made national headlines after he jumped onto the field during the Phillies 3-1 win over Atlanta Monday night.

    Well on Tuesday we learned who was in that “Red Man” suit even if we still haven’t gotten to see his face.

    Sean Hagan left Philly police custody donning the same red outfit he entered in. Waiting for the 17-year-old catholic school student were his disappointed parents.

    “He has to pay for what he did wrong -- that’s the bottom line,” said his mother Barbara Hagan.

    “My son just learned a hard lesson,” said Gary Hagan. “He risked himself, the players, Philadelphia.”

    So will the Northeast Philly teenager get punished?

    “There are consequences for our actions at all times… we tell him that it’s wrong to go out there in that fashion,” said Mr. Hagan.

    You want to wear red tights? Philadelphia D.A. Seth Williams says just don't wear 'em in the middle of the field at Citizens Bank Park. Here's what is likely to happen to last night's field jumper.

    “He owes a lot of people a lot of apologies,” said Mrs. Hagan. “This is wrong, you don’t do it.”

    At least his stunt didn’t get him tased. Earlier this season a field jumping Phillies fan got tased while running on the field. This time all it took to stop Hagan was Braves outfielder Matt Diaz’s perfectly placed leg.

    In the bottom of the seventh inning with the Phils leading 3-1 in the critical NL East battle, Hagan, dressed like the red version of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Green Man bolted onto the Citizens Bank Park field.

    Fans in the crowd like Michelle Filling caught the whole moment on video:

    It turns out the bodysuited teen likely planned to make a scene.

    “Watchin the phillies tonight?:)” he posted to his Facebook page a few hours before Monday’s game.

    And, Hagan's sister told NBC Philadelphia's Deanna Durante on Tuesday that Hagan planned the jump and asked her to pick him up if he got arrested.

    Well he got arrested and now faces a slew of charges, according to Philly’s top prosecutor.

    "We have some idiots that are just overzealous fans. They'll be arrested and prosecuted for their idiocy," said Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams. "If you're gonna wear red tights, wear them in other places... he'll be charged most likely with criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and offenses such as that."

    At least Diaz only tripped Hagan.

    “I saw this idiot coming right at me,” Diaz said. “I figured he'd be better off getting tripped than tased.”

    Diaz's efforts even earned him a round of applause from the sold-out CBP crowd.

    There were no copycats Tuesday night so the home crowd could just focus on cheering for the Phillies.
