Man Charged With Running Onto Field In Gorilla Suit At Bears Game

CHICAGO (CBS) — A Tennessee man has been charged with running onto Soldier Field in a gorilla suit and an “All Lives Matter” shirt during Sunday’s Bears game.

Angelo Graham, 31, faces one felony count of criminal trespass to a place of amusement, according to Chicago Police.

Graham allegedly ran onto the field during a television timeout during the fourth quarter of the Lions vs. Bears game, wearing a t-shirt that said “All Lives Matter” on the front and “Put the Guns Down” on the back. He was tackled by security and arrested by police.

“He actually ran right past me,” Bears receiver Eddie Royal told the Chicago Sun-Times. “I thought it was the mascot at first. I didn’t see the t-shirt.”

Graham, of Maryville, Tennessee, was scheduled to appear in bond court Monday.
