If you’re going to run on the field during an NFL game, you probably don’t have to worry too much about being tackled by a game participant. The players usually keep their distance from the intruders, because they have no idea what the person, especially if he/she is drunk, will do.

Hell, I once saw a guy steal a ball from Brett Favre at mid-field during a Packers-Bengals game, and none of the players touched him.

So, when the 15-year-old kid you see in the video below ran around the field during last week’s Packers-Lions game, he probably didn’t expect for Green Bay linebacker Brad Jones to take him down. But that’s exactly what Jones did, mostly because he was freezing (and probably a little bored) during the delay.

“I was just cold,” Jones said. “I don’t understand how 10 security guards can’t catch one little kid.”

But you know what? I bet if this guy had run on the field as a streaker, Jones wouldn’t have gone anywhere near him.

There’s a lesson in there somewhere.

I'm just waiting for the kid's Lawyer to sue Brad Jones, you know it is coming, but burglers have sued for getting hurt while robbing a house, so I can see the kid sueing the team and Mr.Jones and he will win since the security team are the only people authorized to beat the crap out of people.

 Ha............THAT, is precisley the point, the kid WASN'T hurt!  Think of the lessen learned, IF, he'd only had the crap knocked out of him!
Oh well, just another of those brainless teenagers.   I wonder if he really learned the lesson?   At 15, he probably thought he knew it all, and was just as strong.

No one was hurt in this incedent and most importanly the worlds not going to end. the kid made a poor decision and will now have to pay the consaquences you live and you learn no player or fan should be looked at differantly on the other hand if the kid had a weapon on him its good to know that the saftey of the players could of been i jepordy were the he!! is police he runs free for 20 seconds on the video and then gets slowed down by what looked like a Gb employee and thats when a handful of officers come into all throw a knee on him and whatever else they would like. it sad that the people who are getting paid to protect really showed there motivation to keep the players and people on the field safe im sure if that was a doughnut running on the field poor brad jones wouldnt have to play the role of cop

I was hoping for a clothesline. In fact, a clothesline to the sternum should be mandatory punishment to any moron who runs onto the field during a sporting event. No more of this arresting crap, it's time for swift justice!

After Jones' spiked him he should have autographed the kids forehead.  My only criticizm is that the kid was eventually able to get up which indicates Jones didn't use enough force in his tackle.

And in all fairness, after the idiot kid got out of jail his ole man did the same thing to him.  Sue the player, team, or NFL, he!! the kid should have to write a leter of apology to each and every player, coach, and fan at teh game for the delay.  Good job Brad, and nice tackle.

Why is this even news worthy.  Kid didnt belong on field.  He was committing a crime and needed to be stopped.  Jones should get a medal for his bravery really.  Jones put the kid down and under citizens arrest for trespassing.  Kudos to him.

Considering how the Packers defense has been playing this year, I'm surprized the kid didn't break Jones' tackle...
