LA Rams star Bobby Wagner brutally tackles a protester who ran onto the field during the San Francisco 49ers game


A field invader has learned an important lesson about why you should never run onto the field during an NFL game.

Such an act has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially in football matches.

Adoring fans are regularly seen dodging tackles from rushing security guards just so they can get closer to their idols.

Players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are now used to it and usually force a bizarre request for a selfie.

Most recently, Argentine superstar Messi was confronted by a shirtless fan who demanded that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner sign his back.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker did so, before being himself almost arrested by security agents.

Los Angeles Rams stars Bobby Wagner and Takkarist McKinley weren’t so forgiving when someone ran onto the field during their Monday night game against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi Stadium.

The pitch invader, believed to be an animal rights protester, carried a flare as he evaded rushing security guards, but made the vital mistake of running too close to the Rams bench.

McKinley tried to catch him before Wagner, the 6-foot-tall, 240-pound linebacker, came out and tackled him to the ground.

“It’s not making a play,” Wagner said. “It’s just to keep him safe. You don’t know what this fan has or what he is doing. You see it all the time, and we don’t know what they carry in their pockets. That’s what that little smoke thing is, but that shit could be dangerous.

“One of the guys on the other side, looked like he was hurt, and security looked like they were struggling, so I was frustrated, so I took it on.”
