Five juveniles broke into Tiger Stadium at LSU around 1:45 p.m. Saturday, according to LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard.

The boys were cited for unauthorized entry into a place of business and released, Ballard said. The incident is also logged in the LSU police daily crime log.

This is the latest of a series of break-ins at the stadium that led to a citation or arrest. There were at least two cases in January where individuals or groups broke into the stadium though no damage or theft was reported.

In early January one or more people illegally entered the space overnight and caused "minimal damage" to the grass field.  

During this past fall's football season, two 18-year-old Alabama students were arrested for breaking into the stadium and scratching the tiger eye painted on midfield.
