Boy tackled by security after running onto field at Bucs game

TAMPA, Fla. -- A boy ran onto the field and was tackled hard by a security guard in the second quarter of Tampa Bay's game against Atlanta on Sunday.

A woman who identified herself as the child's mother told The Associated Press the boy is 10 years old. A police officer later told the AP the boy is older than 10 but couldn't release his information because he is a juvenile. The officer said the woman has several children and was confused about which one jumped onto the field.

Tampa Police Department spokesman Eddy Durkin said the boy was issued a civil citation and given a notice to appear in court.

The incident occurred while the Buccaneers were lining up for an extra point after Leonard Fournette's 1-yard touchdown run gave them a 6-0 lead. The Buccaneers went on to win 21-15.

On Monday night, a protester waving a device emitting pink smoke ran onto the field during the San Francisco 49ers' home game and was flattened by Los Angeles Rams linebacker Bobby Wagner.

The protester filed a police report after being subdued by Wagner.
