Fans watched earlier this week the moment Bobby Wagner helped take down a fan carrying a pink smoke flare as the 49ers took on the Rams on Monday Night Football.
Wagner went on to become a trendy topic and was applauded by many for stepping into a rare security guard role. However, the man who was leveled by Wagner has since filed a police report to the Santa Clara Police Department, first reported by TMZ.
“The man went to the Santa Clara Police Dept. on Tuesday following the Rams vs. 49ers game, cops tell us, and filed the report. A spokesperson did not reveal any further details,” the TMZ release read. “A rep for Direct Action Everywhere — the org. that took credit for the wild scene at Levi’s Stadium — told us the report stems from a “blatant assault” by two Rams players.”
Wagner and Rams head coach Sean McVay spent Wednesday addressing the media who asked about the moment and police report.
The best reaction to the situation came from Rams defensive tackle Greg Gaines. He took to Twitter in response to the police report and gave the best reaction about what Wagner did for them.
“I was scared for my life, he could have had a bomb, Bobby Wagner saved our lives.”
Gaines had 3 tackles on Monday night, giving him 9 tackles on the year.
“I ain’t really focused on it. I’m more concerned about the security guard that was hurt trying to chase him. We don’t know what that (pink smoke) is. You’ve just got to do what you’ve got to do.” Wagner said.
The eight-time Pro Bowler was then asked if he was surprised by how popular the video became.
“A little bit,” Wagner said. “I didn’t know. Most times they cut away from that part of the game,” Wagner said.
