Dylan McCue-Masone met the infield dirt of Citi Field during Tuesday's All-Star game, after he ran onto the field and was tackled by stadium security. Now, in the ensuing days, the 18-year-old is also meeting the harsh reality of his actions.

McCue-Masone could face up to a year in jail and $6,000 worth of fines after he was arraigned on charges of interrupting a professional sporting event. He pleaded not guilty Wednesday and was released without bail. He's due back in court on Sept. 11.

On Friday, McCue-Masone sent his first tweet since his Twitter-fueled dash onto the field and it sounded like that reality had set in for the teen:

The whole ordeal came after McCue-Masone told his Twitter followers he'd run on the field during the All-Star game if he got 1,000 retweets. He did, and then felt compelled to make good on his vow, detailing everything in a series in a tweets that have since been deleted.

Wearing a Robinson Cano T-shirt, McCue-Masone made it onto the field and was near second base when he threw up his hands to surrender to security. But got he tackled anyway and was carried off the field. The tackler, according to the New York Daily News, is a former mixed martial arts fighter.

Now that some of the backstory has come out, perhaps the most intresting tidbit is that McCue-Masone was at the game with his father, Bob Mason. Before running onto the field, Dylan told his dad he had to go to the bathroom and his dad even gave him $20 to get a snack.

Both Bob Mason and his ex-wife knew about Dylan's Twitter promise. Dad told Dylan he'd probably get arrested if he followed through. Meanwhile, Mom was sending Dylan text messages, like this one that Dylan posted on Twitter:

The day after the arrest Bob Mason told the Daily News:

"He made it to second base, which is pretty far," he said. "You don't want to glorify it. He's going to find out the hard way."

Sounds like he's finding out all right.
