Fans react to the hearing of the Reds fan who got tased

A Cincinnati Reds fan interrupted the game against the Cleveland Guardians at the Great American Ballpark on Tuesday night. The fan was wearing an old No. 5 Johnny Bench jersey when he attempted to run away from security after jumping down on the field in the ninth inning.

Additionally, the young fan was seen chatting with Guardians OF Tyler Freeman before taking off to escape the security officials. The 19-year-old, identified as William Hendon, even did a backflip before trying to outrun security but was eventually tased. He appeared in the courtroom on Wednesday and was still wearing the Johnny Bench jersey.

Fans didn't hold back from reacting to the theatrics of the young fan as funny comments started pouring in as he became an overnight sensation at the Great American Ballpark.

Some of the fans comments are as follows:

""In my defense your honour, did you see my backflip"," one fan commented
"Free my boy, he ain't do nothing wrong," another fan commented
"The lawyer was representing the streaker, but the streaker was reppin cinci," yet another fan commented

Apart from the overpouring support for the young Reds fan, many reflected on why he was still wearing that jersey.
