ATLANTA (AP) -A Turner Field security guard was expected back at work Sunday after being injured while tackling a man who ran on the field during an Atlanta Braves game.
Josh Garner, 34, landed on his head trying to apprehend the man during the ninth inning of Atlanta's 7-1 victory over Washington on Friday night, the Braves said.
Garner remained on his back for about 10 minutes before getting up on his own and walking to a cart, which carried him off. He was taken to Grady Hospital for treatment of a possible concussion and released.
The team said Garner had a scheduled off day Saturday, but he was expected to be at work for the final game of the weekend series.
Carl Chapman, 22, of suburban Alpharetta, Ga., was wrestled down by several other guards and taken off the field in handcuffs. He was charged with simple battery and criminal trespass, police said.
