This sure isn’t something you see every day.
The playoff game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets was briefly interrupted when a 20-year-old female fan walked out on the court in the second quarter Sunday night.
The woman, identified by police as Savannah McMillan-Christmas of Denver, walked several steps onto the court as Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson brought the ball past half-court. Officials blew the whistle to stop play with 1:10 left and McMillan-Christmas was escorted away by security.
McMillan-Christmas was arrested for investigation of trespassing and taken to a detention facility for booking, said Denver police Det. Todd Erickson, part of the security detail at Pepsi Center.
The TNT broadcast, citing arena security sources, reported that the woman had a history of “stalking or following several players” and that she was “basically banned from the arena” for those incidents.
She was apparently looking for former Denver player Kenyon Martin, who’s now with the LA Clippers. She must not realize he wasn’t at the game.
She responded by asking, “Where’s Kenyon?” an apparent reference to former Nuggets player Kenyon Martin.
