sport news Animal rights activist slammed by Rams linebacker files a police report trends now

The animal rights activist who invaded the field during Monday Night Football this week has filed a police report after being slammed to the ground by Rams linebacker Bobby Wagner, according to reports.

The man - named by DailyMail.com as Alex Taylor of the group Direct Action Everywhere - went to the Santa Clara Police Department on Tuesday after the game, reports TMZ.

It is claimed he filed a report for a 'blatant assault' by not just Wagner, but also a second Rams player who joined from the sidelines to take him down. 

The protest was designed to draw attention to the trial of two members of the group in Utah, where they are accused of stealing pigs. 

The game was temporarily stopped as Taylor, carrying a purple flare, ran on the field with security chasing behind him.

The security staff struggled to keep up with Taylor leaving Wagner and teammate Takkarist McKinley decided to take matters into their own hands. 

The pair had been stood on the sideline as they watched the spectator's great escape unfold. As he passed them, the Rams players darted out in an attempt to bring him down. 

McKinley came at Taylor from behind just as security had eventually caught up. He and the staff both made a move to catch the spectator but Wagner beat them to it. 

It is currently unclear whether the two Rams players will face any further action in the wake of the police report.

As it stands, neither Wagner nor McKinley have been arrested nor charged with a crime, and the former stated after the game that he had 'safety in mind' when he made the decision to get involved.  

On Instagram, the group posted a photo of Allison Fluty and Alex Taylor showing their citations for entering the field of play. The latter reportedly then went to Santa Clara Police Department
