Play was briefly halted in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl 55 when a fan ran onto the Raymond James Stadium field.
The Kansas City Chiefs had the ball trailing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-9 with 5:03 remaining when a man came into view on the CBS broadcast sprinting across the field, bringing play to a halt. The network quickly cut away and went to commercial.
In the stadium, the fan managed to evade two security guards around the 30-yard line during his length-of-the-field sprint. The fan was finally corralled around the end zone when he was brought down by a security guard and quickly pounced on by several others.

The man was wearing black shorts (which he attempted to remove fully to no avail) and a pink one-piece that was emblazoned with the words "Vitaly Uncensored." He began his run wearing a mask but removed it and held it in his hand while he was on the field.
