CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The fan who posted a video selfie running on the field of Great American Ball Park was sentenced to one year probation and ordered to stay away from GABP for a year, court documents show.

Justin Buchanan, 19, will also have to complete 100 hours of community service and a $50 fine.

Buchanan posted a tweet of himself shortly after running on the field Wednesday night. The tweet quickly went viral.

Just before running on to the field, he sent updates by the hour tweeting things like "Here goes nothing" and "Stay tuned."

The young man ran to Reds' center fielder Billy Hamilton and appeared to attempt to shake Hamilton's hand. The runner proceeded to jump over the center field wall and elude two security guards located near the smoke stacks.
