Celtics fan gets carried out of Verizon Center

January 23, 2014

Seeing fans of the visiting team — or fans of the Redskins, for that matter — forcibly dragged out of FedEx Field is hardly newsworthy at this point.

But I have to say, I can’t remember seeing that happen too often at Verizon Center, certainly not during Wizards games.

It happened Wednesday night, though, and man on the scene @ryanjkelly managed to get some video. It started with a scuffle about 15 rows behind the Wizards bench, according to Ryan, who was sitting behind the basket. A whole bunch of reporters and fans also mentioned this incident — which came right around the final minute of regulation.




I can’t promise these images of the Wizards’ bench laughing were in response to the incident, but the timing definitely matches up. This is the bench just before Jeff Green’s game-tying three-pointer in the final minute of regulation.
