Actress Gabrielle Union is proud of her home state. She is an Omaha native and for a time, she attended the University of Nebraska.

On Tuesday morning, Union apparently got carried away with her school pride. On Twitter, she admitted to "mildly tackling" a man in Nebraska basketball gear at the Los Angeles International Airport. It turns out that it was first-year assistant coach Phil Beckner.
