It appears as though he's not aggressively moving towards law enforcement, he's actually doing the opposite, he's passively stepping back.

>> The protests outside the football game come as players across the NFL have staged demonstrations against police violence towards minorities during the National Anthem. The Panthers had so far not participated. But on Sunday, safety Marcus Ball reportedly stood with his fist raised while the song played.
