Knoxville police warn Vols fans not to storm field

Posted:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Local police are warning Tennessee fans not to storm the field after Saturday's game with Florida at Neyland Stadium.

 Knoxville police are threatening to arrest overzealous Tennessee fans this weekend and they've turned to social media to get the message out

The police posted a release on the department's Facebook page starting anyone who storms the field at Neyland Stadium will be arrested and charged with aggravated criminal trespassing.

It goes on to state fans will also be charged with inciting a riot if they're caught enticing someone else to come on the field.

Of course, the Vols would have to beat the Florida Gators in order for any kind of celebration to occur and that hasn't happened since 2004.  The school would face a major fine from the SEC as well.  Storming the field or court after a game is a strict no-no in the Southeastern Conference.
