If you are a Texas Tech football fan or your favorite team is playing the Red Raiders, you may want to avoid running out onto the field because Texas Tech strength coach Rusty Whitt won’t let you get very far.
During the Red Raiders’ loss to Oklahoma on Saturday, one fan made the brave attempt to run across the field.
Whitt reacted quickly and leveled the fan before dragging him off the field with the help of a Texas Ranger. Whitt himself is an Army veteran, so the fan who attempted to run across the field never had a chance.
Video of the incident has surfaced on social media.

The fan has since been identified and bonded out of jail, according to a report from KFYO.
The report states:
The fan, later identified as James Colton Brown of Lubbock (pictured above), was immediately apprehended by a Texas Ranger and Rusty Whitt, Texas Tech Football Strength & Conditioning coach Rusty Whitt. Brown bonded out of jail after 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
James Brown ran out onto the field at Jones AT&T Stadium immediately after Oklahoma took a 44-40 lead on defensive a two-point conversion. The commotion on the field lasted less than a minute, as Whitt grabbed Brown’s hoodie and quickly handed him over to two Texas Rangers. The Texas Rangers quickly took Brown out of the stadium via the home sideline, and the game resumed without much interruption.
Brown was charged with one count of Criminal Trespass and one count of Public Intoxication.
Judging by his mugshot, Brown didn’t mind the arrest.
