Wizards Fan Runs On Court During Wizards’ Win Over 76ers

Another game, another fan incident. Since arenas have been allowing fans back in, it’s been absolute anarchy. A fan ran onto the court and jumped up and touched the backboard during the game at Capital One Arena in the Philadelphia 76ers-Washington Wizards playoff game. The fan was quickly tackled by a security guard and pulled off the floor before being handcuffed by police.

Video footage showed the fan ran full speed down from the main grandstand past several rows of courtside seats and onto the floor within a matter of seconds.

Watch below:


“This is not a game or some s— you can just do whatever you want to do and run around,” Wizards guard Russell Westbrook said after Washington’s 122-114 win. “This is our job, and we take our job very seriously.”



Just another example of fan misbehaving over the past week.

Let’s hope they nip this in the bud before something really bad happens.
