The game was briefly paused in the 87th minute as a young man took to the field at Kingsmeadow to take a selfie with Chelsea player Magdalena Eriksson.
Video footage shows him being greeted by boos from the crowd as he enters the pitch, but they soon turned to cheers as Kerr, 28, took action.
As he ambled around the field, Chelsea’s Australia international saw an opportunity to take him down and RAMMED into him.
The male was sent flying to the ground.
Stewards were slow to the melee and had to chase the invader after he climbed back to his feet and ran off the pitch.
The referee did not seem best pleased with Kerr’s actions and booked her for getting involved – despite some thinking she was more deserving of a gold medal.

Blues manager Emma Hayes was stunned by the act and said: “I don’t know why he didn’t wait to the end, he could have got a picture then.
“But jokes aside, we do have to think about player safety.”
Many fans took to twitter to share their thoughts, with one person saying: “Doing a public service – legend!”
Another added: “Yellow card? Wrong – should have been a gold medal.”
However, some were not as amused with what happened as one comment said: “There are variants going on. Player health is important. Even though I’m not in support of Sam Kerr’s action, but people shouldn’t be running onto the pitch.”
The Champions League group stage clash between the Chelsea and Juventus finished 0-0.
It was a frustrating night for the home side, who failed to score for the first time this season.
