Antone Exum Jr. is known for being a helpful guy, and his spirit got the best of him today in Oakland when a fan ran onto the field and got taken down by the Vikings defensive back.

Exum told the press later that it was in the interest of self-preservation:

“We didn’t know what was going on at first, but then we realized it was a wild guy running around on the field,” the second-year safety said after the win. “So long story short, I felt threatened, so I acted on it and I did a successful job taking him down and hopefully I kept everybody safe.”

We’re all shocked here that a Raiders fan got unruly at a football game.
