PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A 34-year-old man who ran on the field at a Phillies game to chants of "Tase him!" has been charged with marijuana possession, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and other counts.

Police say Thomas Betz, of Warminster, Pa., hopped over the left field fence at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia and ran along the warning track in the top of the ninth inning Tuesday, one day after a teenager was Tasered in the outfield.

The crowd booed and some chanted "Tase him!" Betz was taken off the field without incident.

Betz's voicemail is full and he could not immediately be reached Wednesday.

In the wake of Monday's encounter, police are considering whether officers should get involved in on-field chases. Officers didn't run on the field Tuesday.
