    22-year-old Kyle Morrison charged his way toward the court without his pants during the Heat game. He told the judge he's entitled to $10,000 after rapper Rick Ross challenged fans to streak in a video.

    A man was arrested for running down stairs of the AmericanAirlines Arena without pants in an attempt to reach the court during Tuesday night's Miami Heat playoff game, authorities said.

    Kyle Morrison, 22, was arrested early Wednesday morning and faces charges including disorderly conduct, resisting an officer with violence, battery on an officer, trespassing and indecent exposure, police said. He is being held on $6,500 bond in the Miami-Dade County Jail.

    [MI] Man Arrested For Streaking At Heat Playoff Game: Cops
    A man was arrested for running down stairs of the AmericanAirlines Arena without pants in an attempt to reach the court during Tuesday night's Miami Heat playoff game, authorities said. Hear from 22-year-old Kyle Morrison in bond court.

    Morrison, who is from Orlando but attends Jacksonville University, said he was in Miami to attend the game. He told a bond court judge he was going to receive money for his stunt.

    “I am actually entitled to 10 grand because of what I did,” Morrison told the judge before he was silenced by a public defender.

    Police said Morrison ran down stairs of section 120 and 121 without pants on in an attempt to gain access to the floor during the game, but was stopped by an officer.

    The officer, who said Morrison tried to push him out of the way, said he caused a “large number of people to stop watching the game and focus on his actions,” according to an affidavit.

    The officer also said Morrison struggled to get free when he was being placed in handcuffs.

    His attorney's name wasn't immediately available.

    Back when the Heat were playing the Knicks in the first round of the playoffs, local rapper Rick Ross challenged fans to streak in a video.

    "When the Finals come, I got 10 grand for somebody to streak with just they MMG T-shirt on, screaming out, 'self made' on June 26th," Ross said, referring to his music label. "Hit me up on Twitter, I got 10 stacks."

    Morrison's run came during the Eastern Conference semifinals and not the NBA Finals, however.
