If you can’t beat ’em, tase ’em.

That was the lesson for Cincinnati police on Tuesday night, when an over-enthusiastic Reds fan stormed the field and eluded cops before executing a flawless back flip in front of one helpless officer.

Spectators at Great American Ball Park were all too happy to ignore the 5-3 loss to the visiting Cleveland Guardians and instead focus on the attention-seeking hooligan in a Johnny Bench replica jersey.

The man first darted over to Guardians centerfielder Tyler Freeman, who appeared unamused with the ninth-inning visit. From there, the intruder ran away while victoriously raising both arms above his head only to come to an abrupt stop in shallow right-center field.
