When fans rush onto the court or charge the field during sporting events, we typically get the impression that they are either drunk or have a goal in mind — or both. We’ve all seen crazy dudes at baseball games who hop over the stands and try to high-five the superstars before a security guard lays them out, but what happened on Sunday night during Game 4 of the opening round playoff series between the Nuggets and Lakers was a bit unordinary.

As you can see from the video above, a woman who was sitting courtside in Denver wandered out onto the court just before the first half ended, then turned around to head back to her seat. For a second it almost looked like she was going to commit a reach-in foul. As Deadspin shared with us, TNT’s Craig Sager pointed out during the broadcast that the woman was yelling at players before being escorted off the court and removed from the arena. Sager spoke with a couple of detectives who said she has a history of stalking players and was basically supposed to be banned from the arena. She is being charged with trespassing.

She should just be thankful she got out of there before something like this happened.

Update: A story from the Associated Press informs us that the woman, Savannah McMillan-Christmas, was arrested for investigation of trespassing and taken to a detention facility for booking, according to Denver Police Det. Todd Erickson.

Erickson, a member of the Pepsi Center security detail, was at his post when he spotted woman stepping onto the court in front of Nuggets G Andre Miller.

“I happened to see her walk on to the court and I thought, ‘Uh, oh,’” Erickson said.

He and other security personnel quickly hustled over to the woman and told her to go back to her seat, to which she responded, “Where’s Kenyon?” apparently referencing former Nuggets player Kenyon Martin.

  • that's why you shouldn't serve booze at the games. Some don't know how to say I have had enough!
  • That is exactly what I was thinking. Or, if you must serve booze set a limit of 2 or 3 drinks for the game. Monitoring this can be done with a system of wrist-bands that receive a hole punch for each drink purchased. (I've seen it work) BUT, these enormous sporting franchises make to much money from the sales so they'll never enforce anything like that.
  • they said she had been banned from the area for stalking other denver players in the past.She looked to be drunk and disoriented. How did she in and with a court side seat?! I've never seen that before in a NBA game. She probably has a mental problem. should have passed her the ball. Just kidding. Very weird scene.
  • Again because of a fool lets make it so everybody has to pay for it. Banning booze is regressive. I go to the games and enjoy my beer, I and about 99% of the rest of the fans do not make fools of themselves. Yes there is always going to be that one idiot, but most people are there to enjoy it
  • Drunks usually don't recognize other drunks acting like fools.
    99% is a ridiculous percentage. I stopped taking my kids to ball games because of the the idiot's in the stands, swearing and yelling at the refs like they might actually change the outcome of the game. People have gotten so rude. They actually sit there and use every four letter word in the book with a 4yr. old next to them and if you say something to them they're ready to fight with your kid standing right there.
  • At first I thought whe was going to set a pick.
  • TWO WORDS, Ok, 3 WORDS!Whitney Houston returns!
  • We could use her on the Bulls, everybody else is getting injured.
