Celtics fan arrested for throwing beer can at Spurs bench

Celtics Fan Ejected & Arrested For Throwing Beer Can At Spurs Bench [VIDEO]

A Boston Celtics fan was thrown out of TD Garden and arrested on Wednesday after he tossed a beer can in the direction of the San Antonio Spurs bench.

The incident occurred during a stoppage of play in the third quarter of the Celtics’ 129-114 loss. Boston guard Kemba Walker was ejected after drawing consecutive technical fouls. Walker began contesting a no-call of a foul on Spurs star LaMarcus Aldridge.

According to local television station WCVB5, police identified the fan as 22-year-old Everett, Massachusetts native Justin Arnold. Arnold was charged with disturbing a public assembly.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens reportedly apologized to his Spurs counterpart Gregg Popovich for the fan’s behavior following the matchup and added he hoped the young man would never be allowed to come to any NBA game again.

Several Celtics players also said they condoned the fan’s behavior.

“I love our fans, love the passion that they bring. They certainly bring a lot of energy, but we’ve got to try to stay away from that,” said Gordon Hayward.

Video footage of the incident shows a beer can flying from the stands behind the Spurs’ bench and landing by the feet of one of San Antonio’s players. The can was not empty, so the court’s floor had to be wiped down before play continued.

The NBA instituted new rules regarding fan behavior late last year, so it’s no surprise this incident was dealt with so quickly.
