Authorities say a homeless who said he was looking for the fastest route to a concession stand was arrested after walking onto the outfield during a minor league baseball game in Pennsylvania. Logan Township police say they'll file criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness charges against 24-year-old Tyrone Squires over Tuesday night's incident. Police say Squires is from Massachusetts but has no permanent address.

Police say Squires lowered himself over a fence and onto the field during the bottom of the ninth inning during an Altoona Curve game against the Akron Aeros.

Ballpark security allowed him to walk slowly along the outfield warning track and grabbed him as he exited near the Curve bullpen along the right field line.
