THE animal rights activist who stormed the field during 49ers vs. Rams has filed a complaint with police.
The protester reportedly represented “Direct Action Everywhere” and stormed onto the field during the second quarter of San Francisco’s MNF win.
He trailed a pink flare as security ran to prevent the intruder from reaching any players.
But Rams star Wagner took matters into his own hands, throwing the intruder to the ground as he tried to evade capture.
Viral footage showed the Super Bowl champion – aided by Takkarist McKinley – quickly halting the protester’s free reign with a hard tackle.
According to TMZ, the fan has now reported the incident to the police.
A Santa Clara police spokesman did not mention the protester by name on Wednesday, but confirmed to Yahoo Sports that an assault charge had been filed.
Lieutenant Cuong Phan said, “It is an active investigation.
“I can confirm that a person came in [on Tuesday] at 1.45 p.m. and reported back.
“However, this is an ongoing investigation, so we are unable to release any details at this time.”
Phan did not confirm whether the complaint was against Wagner or the Rams organization as a whole.
Rams coach Sean McVay weighed in on the debate, saying he will support his player’s actions.
McVay said on Wednesday: “We all know where Bobby’s intentions were and I support Bobby Wagner.
“I’m at it right now. I don’t think anyone would disagree.”
After Monday’s game, Wagner said he attacked the protester out of concern for the safety of others.
He said: “It doesn’t make a game. That just keeps it safe.
“You don’t know what this fan got or what they’re doing.
“You see it all the time and we don’t know what they’re carrying in their pockets.
“It’s whatever this little smoking stuff is, but that stuff could be dangerous.”
