Getting into Alabama football coach Nick Saban's personal space might not be a good idea. Watch this video from the Ole Miss post game this past Saturday.

It was shot by WHNT News 19 Sports Anchor/Reporter Chase Horn as Rebel fans stormed the field after Ole Miss defeated Alabama, 23-17, in a historic win.

One fan got a little too close as Saban was leaving the field. An Alabama state trooper delivered a chokeslam and Saban stepped over the fan as he continued to run off the field.

A University of Alabama spokesman said the student did not appear to be attempting to confront Saban, but his celebration apparently carried him into the path of Saban and his security force, WHNT reported.
