TMZ Sports was told by Direct Action Everywhere that the individual who ran onto the field was “[raising] awareness for a trial involving the alleged theft of pigs from a factory farm.”

Wagner responded to the filing of the police report while speaking with the media on Thursday, saying that the incident is “behind him.”

“I heard about it, but it is what it is,” Wagner said, h/t NBC News. “It’s behind me. 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.”

Rams head coach Sean McVay also responded to the news of the police report, where he defended Wagner for taking action.

“I did hear that,” coach Sean McVay said, h/t ProFootballTalk. “I think that we all know where Bobby’s intentions were. I support Bobby Wagner, that’s where I’m at with that. I don’t think anybody would disagree.”

The Rams lost 24-9 to the 49ers in that game.

Wagner signed with the Rams this offseason after spending his entire career with the Seattle Seahawks. In four games, Wagner recorded 33 combined tackles, three quarterback hits, and two sacks.
