You know the ground security guards are slow when a pitch-invader has time to erect a tent.
Yep, that’s what happened at Canterbury County Cricket Ground yesterday. A fan ran onto the pitch, erected a tent, crawled inside, stripped off, and emerged completely naked – but for a crash helmet.
‘Mr Lee Marshall disrupted play for several minutes with what must be one of the most ludicrous pitch-invasions ever.
A solitary female attendant confronted Mr Lee Marshall.’
But upon her approach he simply hid in his man-cave.
Reinforcements dawdled onto the county ground and eventually Marshall was escorted from the field.
Marshall (who goes by the Twitter handle #Discoboy) is, according to his profile an “Entertainer, prankster and DJ.” He has performed the same stunt at shopping centres.
He later claimed on social media that he had been released without a fine. He says authorities simply told him, “You can’t camp there.”
