Fan leveled by Bobby Wagner at Levi’s Stadium is seeking legal recourse

One of the more bizarre aspects of the Los Angeles Rams' Week 4 loss was an incident between a streaker and starting linebacker Bobby Wagner. Just before half-time, the fan made his way onto the field and was subsequently overwhelmed by Wagner with a savage strike that quickly ended his 15 seconds of glory.
Armed with a pink beacon-like device, the fan was arrested and few gave the situation much thought until Streaker filed a police report with the Santa Clara Police Department on Wednesday afternoon.

Whether his report will lead to a formal investigation is unclear at this point, although it appears he will remain liable for his disruption of Monday night's game regardless of the outcome. He and his representatives claim there was an "open assault" by Wagner and another Rams player, but the accuracy of their testimony in the eyes of the law has yet to be established.
While Los Angeles would much rather have emerged victorious from the match and spared the speedster, the legacy of this incident will surely continue to garner media attention in the weeks to come. If charges are formally filed against Wagner and his teammate, the franchise will likely engage its legal team to mitigate any claims for redress from the recalcitrant fan.
