(NEXSTAR) – It seems to happen at every major sporting event: A fan ran onto the field at SoFi Stadium during the Super Bowl.

Security chased down the spectator as he ran acrross the field. He appeared to be holding a sign, but it’s unclear exactly what it says.

What is clearer is that the spectator is wearing a Super Bowl LVI sweater and appears to have a bag from the Super Bowl Experience.

This, of course, is not the first spectator to sprint onto a Super Bowl field. During last year’s game in Tampa, a man clad in a pink leotard ran across the field before being brought down.

That fan, who was charged with misdemeanor trespassing, was trying to get exposure for his pornography website.

The identity of the fan who ran onto the field at SoFi Stadium is still unclear, as is his potential motive.
