A fan ran on the field during Sunday night’s AFC championship game with a sign supporting President Donald Trump.
The gray-headed man was quickly tackled by Arrowhead Stadium security when he made his way onto the field at some point during the game between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs. You can see the Patriots offense and quarterback Tom Brady on the field when the fan is being chased by security. And that security personnel did a good job with the tackle.
The moment wasn’t shown on the game but was captured on video by KMBC 9. He was hauled off the field after he was tackled.
The United States government is currently shut down as Trump demands funding for a wall on the United States’ southern border. This man’s sign and field-crashing efforts will not have any effect on the impasse.
If you’re a Chiefs fan, you’re liable to make the joke that security showed better pursuit than the Chiefs’ run defense. The Patriots drove down the field for a touchdown after winning the coin toss to start overtime and beat the Chiefs 37-31. New England will face the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl.
