PHILADELPHIA A man arrested for running onto the field during the Philadelphia Eagles' game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday told police he was spreading his late mother's ashes.

Christopher Noteboom, of Tempe, Ariz., ran onto the field holding a plastic bag, leaving a cloud of fine powder behind.


As he reached the 30-yard line, he dropped to his knees, made the sign of the cross and laid down on his stomach. Security personnel reached him moments later and he offered no resistance as he was escorted from the field.

The 33-year-old Noteboom, a native of Doylestown, said his mother died of emphysema in January 2005, shortly before the Eagles' Super Bowl appearance.

"She never cared for any other team except the Eagles," Noteboom told WPVI-TV after he was released from custody Monday. "I know that the last handful of ashes I had are laying on the field, and will never be taken away. She'll always be part of Lincoln Financial Field and of the Eagles."

Noteboom, a bar owner in Arizona, was charged with defiant trespass. He has a hearing scheduled for Dec. 27.

"It's bizarre, but we have a zero tolerance for people who run on the field," Police Inspector William Colarulo said. "We especially have a zero tolerance for people who run onto the field and dump an unknown substance in a stadium full of people."

Eagles spokeswoman Bonnie Grant said the team has declined requests to spread ashes on the field.

he tried to honor his mother's passing in a way he thought was special.


He did so without hurting anyone.

Maybe he should asked the Eagles permission first and maybe they would have accomdated him during an off day.

well damn, if people are taking requests I'd like my ashes jammed into Al Davis's throat and held there for about 10 minutes.

Except for the players inhaling a burnt-up dead broad.

Do the Eagles play on a natural or artificial surface? Mom may already be vacuumed up and taken to the dump.

I was born and raised catholic and they never had a problem with it.

And If someone would dump my ashes on Arrowhead's field I think that'd be pretty cool...

It was forbidden in the Church before Vatican II.

The fact is that the Eagles can't allow ashes to be spread on the field or at the stadium. In this day and age they can't risk that the person isn't spreading anthrax or some other type of poison. It's just not worth the hassle.

Pre-quel.

Yeah. But like most sequels, it doesn't live up to the action and intensity of the first one.

Kind of like Lethal Weapon 2.
