A very strange, very bizarre incident took place tonight during Game 4 of the Lakers-Nuggets playoff series when a seemingly disoriented woman wandered out onto the court right in the middle of game action. Play was immediately stopped as the bewildered fan was escorted off the court before play resumed.
On the surface it seems like a fan sitting courtside may have had a bit too much to drink and decided not to bother waiting for the game to finish before asking for some players autographs. But no, this woman seems to have a history with the Nuggets and their players, specifically former Nugget Kenyon Martin, who now plays with the Clippers.
According to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, the woman is 20-year-old Savannah McMillan-Christmas, who had been banned from the Pepsi Center for allegedly stalking Martin. Sources also told Spears that McMillan-Christmas had been screaming “Where is Kenyon?” at the Denver bench before making her way on the floor.
The Denver Post is reporting that a couple of off-duty Denver police officers cited McMillan-Christmas for trespassing but did not detain her, and the troubled young woman will appear in a Denver court on Monday.
