CLEVELAND, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say six men wearing costumes - four Power Rangers, a ninja and a Spider-Man - have been arrested and charged with disrupting or interfering with a girls' high school soccer game in Cleveland, Ga.

Players and coaches said they didn't know what was going on, and were fearful as the men dashed onto the field and surrounded a goalie during Tuesday's Gainesville vs. White County game.

White County Coach Nathan Adams said it was scary to see the men charge the field, and described it as the craziest thing he's witnessed at a sporting event. After they approached the goalie, spectators pursued the men into a wooded area where most were found behind a log cabin.

A sheriff's report stated the men said they ran onto the field as a prank and that they were bored.

    Charge them about a 1000 dollars a piece,and they'll learn you can't do that. All these ding bats scaring people when there's people running around killing people, you can't take any chances.
