Chad DeWick walked out of the Duval County jail Monday afternoon, about 24 hours after his arrest on a charge of disorderly intoxication at Sunday’s Jaguars game.

Leaving jail, DeWick told Channel 4 that despite the night in jail and eating some bad food, he’d be willing to run onto the field during a game again.

“The Jacksonville Jaguars were losing so and I figured I’d make it a little more entertaining,” said DeWick.

DeWick, 25, appeared somewhat proud of himself for pulling the stunt this is only drawing a slap on the wrist from the legal system.
The Jaguars are not being as forgiving. They say DeWick will not be allowed back to a Jaguars game ever despite an NFL policy instituted this season. The league’s policy is to have disruptive fans complete an online class developed by a psychotherapist that costs $75 to $100 that teaches people how to act in a stadium.

The incident during the third quarter of the Jaguars-Texans game is also raising security concerns.  DeWick was able to run more than 100 yards on the field before Jaguar’s Safety Dwight Lowry ran him down and handed him over to security.

SMG, the company that runs EverBank Field, send WJXT this statement:

“An incident of this nature is completely unacceptable. SMG is currently investigating the actions, procedures and protocols of CSC, the company that provides on field security at EverBank Field, to ensure that this type of incident never occurs again.”
