Original story from 11/7/2022 below:

During the Jaguars’ victorious football game on Sunday, three men attempted to run on the field, with only one of them succeeding.

Ethan Davies, 24, jumped over the barrier and ran through the field holding on to a football. According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office arrest report, he continued his run across the field, causing the NFL game to come to a pause for a minute and 42 seconds.


Security personnel also chased Davies and took him to the ground while JSO arrived. Police noticed he was covered in an oil-like substance that made him very slippery.

Davies was escorted off the field.

In the arrest reports, two other suspects were involved who had been seen with Davies multiple times.
