Bobby Wagner responds to streaker’s police report

The Los Angeles Rams have seen their share of drama so far in 2022, but none as bizarre as what has occurred between starting linebacker Bobby Wagner and a streaker who interrupted their Monday night matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. After running onto the field with a device that emitted copious amounts of pink smoke, the streaker was summarily tackled by Wagner and a teammate before being escorted into the custody of law enforcement per standard procedure.

Today, news broke that the hooligan had filed a police report against Wagner, alleging that he was the victim of a “blatant assault” by the pair of Rams, which may open the door to legal recourse depending on the results of the Santa Clara Police Department’s findings.

Wagner responded to the report’s filing on Wednesday, saying that he had been apprised of the situation.

“I’m aware of it,” Wagner said. “[But] I’m more concerned about the security guard who got hurt trying to chase him.”

His total disregard for the safety of the streaker is on-brand for a player who put a swift end to stadium shenanigans in primetime. Especially on the road, players must always be aware of their surroundings and the behavior of fans who may be quick to make their mark on the game unnecessarily.

In the event that Wagner faces any legal trouble over the incident, the Rams organization would likely provide any council necessary to make sure any charges brought against him would be quickly dismissed. After a loss on the road, potential court proceedings are the last thing that the team wants its star players to worry about, especially as they head into the meat of their grueling 17-game schedule.
