In the video, which Davis posted to Instagram and which can be seen above, the fan can be seen being physically restrained by multiple police officers or security workers. The fan says repeatedly that he was only seeking an autograph.
Davis tweeted that the police/security then became aggressive towards him for recording the incident. He insisted on Twitter he had the right to be recording what they were doing.
St. Louis Cops are overly aggressive. He started pushing me once he decided I should be finished recording. lol ..— Anthony Davis (@AnthonyDavis76) October 14, 2014

Davis didn't play against St. Louis, missing his second straight game due to a sprained MCL.
The 49ers came back from a 14-0 deficit to defeat the Rams 31-17.
