PHILADELPHIA —

A costumed Phillies fan who ran onto the field and briefly eluded security guards during a game at Citizens Bank Park has been released from juvenile detention.

The parents of 17-year-old Sean Hagan of Philadelphia picked him up Tuesday afternoon.

Gary and Barbara Hagan apologized for their son's actions. They say he will be punished for putting himself and players at risk.

The teen walked out of custody dressed in the head-to-toe red spandex suit police say he was wearing when he ran onto the field Monday night. He faces disorderly conduct and related charges.

Hagan was apprehended by security guards after Atlanta Braves left fielder Matt Diaz tripped him.

In May, a police officer chased another 17-year-old Phillies fan before firing a stun gun at him, sending him crumpling to the turf.
