Meet Kryshana Pierce, a 23-year old woman who found a way through security to jump onto the field and meet with several players on the field. Only... she did it illegally. Pierce is the woman who tapped Andy Dalton on the shoulder during Cincinnati's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Per ABC Channel 6 in Indianapolis:

She reportedly was able to speak to and touch a Bengals player before Colts security guards got hold of her and kicked her out of the stadium, calling police in the process.

Investigators said they are unsure how Pierce was able to gain access to the field, but she now faces preliminary charges of criminal trespassing, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct.

The Indianapolis Star writes:

She managed to touch the arm of Cincinnati Bengals' quarterback Andy Dalton, to reach her hand out for what looked like a limp, halfhearted handshake back from him.

To tell him, "Nice to meet you." That's what Dalton said the Dayton, Ohio, woman said to him Sunday.
