During Game 4 action between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers, a woman walked onto the floor at Pepsi Center.
As Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson was pushing the ball up the floor with the Nuggets ahead 49-44, a woman appeared on the floor, appearing to stagger, and was escorted off by a detective as game action had to be stopped.
The incident left TNT analyst Steve Kerr perplexed. "I don't know if she was chasing something she had dropped from her seat? That was bizarre."
Denver police Det. Todd Erickson, part of the security detail at the Pepsi Center, escorted the woman off the court and to a detention facility.
"I happened to see her walk on to the court and I thought 'Uh oh,' " Erickson said.
Before the third quarter began, TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager said the woman has a history of stalking with the Nuggets, according to Denver police.
"Several years ago she was found stalking or following several players. She has basically been banned from the arena, but she got in tonight," Sager reported.
The woman, later identified as 20-year-old Savannah McMillan-Christmas of Denver, was charged with trespassing, according to Sager.
