A disturbing video has emerged from the recent field rush at Texas Tech University, where fans stormed the field after the football team’s victory over the University of Texas. The video, which has gone viral on social media, shows several fans engaging in violent behavior, including assaulting a police horse and throwing objects at police officers.
Assault on Police Horse
One of the most disturbing incidents captured on video shows a fan assaulting a police horse. The video shows the fan punching the horse in the face, causing the horse to rear up and almost throw the officer off its back. The fan was quickly apprehended by police and charged with assault on a police animal.
Violent Behavior Towards Police Officers
Other videos show fans throwing objects at police officers, including water bottles and other debris. One video shows a group of fans surrounding a police car and rocking it back and forth, while officers try to maintain control of the situation. Several fans were arrested for disorderly conduct and other charges related to their behavior during the field rush.
After the incident, Texas Tech University released a statement condemning the violent behavior of the fans. The statement read, “The behavior exhibited by a portion of our fans towards law enforcement on the field last night was unacceptable and not reflective of our university or our values as a community.”
The university also announced that it would be reviewing its policies and procedures regarding field rushes in the future, in an effort to prevent similar incidents from occurring. The university has a responsibility to ensure the safety of its students, faculty, and staff, as well as members of the general public who attend events on campus.
The disturbing video from Texas Tech’s field rush has sparked outrage and concern among many people, who are appalled by the violent behavior of some fans. It is important for universities to take a strong stance against such behavior, and to take steps to prevent it from happening in the future.
