Two shirtless football fans were taken away in handcuffs after running onto the field during Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas on Sunday.
The two men, who appeared shirtless with illegible writing displayed on their torsos and backs, sprinted onto the football field at Allegiant Stadium with approximately five minutes remaining in the third quarter. The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs are currently facing off for the ultimate prize, the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Several security officials quickly ran onto the field, tackling both individuals to the ground before walking them out of the stadium.
The two men were later captured on video in the back, being escorted by a handful of police officers in handcuffs. The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for more information, and to find out if the two men are facing any charges.
While the incident wasn’t broadcast on television, photos and videos quickly circulated on social media of the two men running. Announcers Jim Nantz and Tony Romo also called out the individuals during the game, saying there are “partial streaker[s].”
