The Rams linebacker flattened the protester, who ran onto the field with a device emitting pink smoke during the second quarter of Los Angeles’ game against the San Francisco 49ers late Monday night.

“I just saw someone running on the field,” Wagner said. “It looked like he shouldn’t be on the field, so I saw security had a problem, so I helped them.”

With less than a minute left in the first half, the individual entered the field and ran over while being pursued by security as the pink smoke filled the field. As the person ran to the Rams’ sideline, linebacker Takkarist McKinley approached him before Wagner came off the sideline and put him down with a big hit.

“I saw Bobby Wagner take someone out,” said 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan. “I thought that was kind of cool to see.”

The protester was removed from the field by security and play quickly resumed.

At the beginning of the game, another person tried to get onto the field with a similar device, but was stopped by security.

According to a press release from the group Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), the fan was on the field as part of a protest, according to KRON. The group said two people were cited after running onto the field at different points. According to the group, the protest was intended to highlight a trial of two “factory whistleblowers” that began on Monday. The two men allegedly found dead and sick piglets at Circle Four Farm in Utah and have been charged with crimes including trespassing, theft and burglary.
