It seems every great sports moment is marked by an equally great fan arrest. At Citi Field on Friday night, a 32-year-old airport employee in a vintage Gary Carter jersey became the latest courageous lunatic to join the ranks of the all-time greats when he broke several laws by joining the Mets team celebration following Johan Santana's no-hitter, the first in franchise history. The stunt landed him on the cover of the New York Post — every serial groper's dream! — along with overnight detention in a city jail with the possibility of future imprisonment, fines, and a lifetime ban from the stadium. But as the video clearly shows, it was so totally worth it. Check out the rest of the best fan interferences in televised sports history.
