CLEVELAND -- The fan who ran onto the field at Cleveland
Browns Stadium during a Steelers-Browns game was sentenced Tuesday
to spend Super Bowl weekend in jail.
Nathan Mallett, 24, will begin his three-day sentence on Feb. 3
and won't be allowed to watch the Feb. 5 game on television or
listen to it on radio.
Municipal Court Judge Joan Synenberg ordered Mallett not to
attend Browns games in Cleveland or any other city for five years
as a condition of his probation. He also most perform 150 hours of
community service with Browns charities. He could have been
sentenced to up to 30 days in jail.
Mallett, who expressed remorse in court, was convicted earlier
this month of misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct while
intoxicated and criminal trespassing.
He has said he raced onto the field because he was upset by
Pittsburgh's 41-0 win over the Browns on Dec. 24. His jaunt ended
when Steelers linebacker James Harrison body-slammed him onto the
ground and held him for police.
