ST. LOUIS — The streaker who ran naked onto the field during a Cardinals game says he did so because he lost a bet.

Collin Grundstrom, 22, of Jefferson City was captured on the field after shedding his clothes before the start of the seventh inning Thursday night. Officers retrieved his shorts from the stands before leading him away.

Grundstrom is charged with violating two city ordinances — being a spectator running on the playing field, and lewd and lascivious behavior. He was jailed overnight.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Grundstrom told police he ran onto the field because he lost a bet.
