Streaker boycotts the Super Bowl in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Two people were arrested after police say they ran onto the field during the Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday.
With nearly five minutes remaining in the third quarter of the Super Bowl, the two people took to the field at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
“Oh, we have people on the field,” broadcaster Tony Romo said.
“Oh my God, we’re doing it, we’ve got a striker on the other side…” Jim Nantz replied.
“Partial striker,” Romo replied.
That person never appeared on the broadcast, and the incident does not appear to have led to the game being delayed for an extended period.
Moments later, Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker nailed a 57-yard field goal, surpassing the record for longest field goal ever in a Super Bowl, set earlier in the game by San Francisco 49ers rookie kicker Jake Moody.
The photos appear to show up to three people running on the field during the incident. The exact number of people who took to the square was not immediately available.
Las Vegas Police Department officials said that two people were arrested after the incident.
