MILWAUKEE -- Law enforcement officials on Tuesday apprehended a man who had gained entry to Miller Park and caused minor damage to the playing field.

"At approximately 7 a.m. this morning, an unarmed individual illegally entered Miller Park and gained access to the playing surface," the Brewers said in a statement. "He was apprehended a short time later by law enforcement after causing minor damage to the field. As this involves an ongoing investigation, we unfortunately cannot provide additional details at this time."

The incident was isolated to one individual, according to a source, and there is “no indication whatsoever” that it was related to recent protests in Milwaukee and throughout the country over the death of George Floyd.
