GALLATIN, Tenn. -- (KIAH) -- It's football season, and you know what that means; tailgating and tackling. One notable off-the-field tackle in Tennessee happened at the Sumner County Jail.

It all went down when a man ran inside the jail with a shotgun and held visitors hostage.

Anthony Hyde says, "I just jumped forward and grabbed the gun with both hands and pushed it and pushed him."

Apparently, Hyde beat James McCutchen so badly he broke a finger in the process.
