According to ESPN, last night a fan at the UC Santa Barabara- Hawaii game ran onto the court and confronted the Warriors’ coaching staff and players, which will be the third time in a month that a person in the stands has acted in a violent matter to the coach and players. However, the man was arrested after being quickly ushered off the court during the game.
UCSB spokesman Bill Mahoney said the man, who the school believed was a student, was arrested by campus police. Mahoney, who did not identify the fan, said the man could face discipline, including being expelled if he is a student.
"Historically when things like this happen, the student, who was arrested, would go in front of Judicial Affairs, which is part of Student Affairs," Mahoney said in an email to ESPN. "The extent of his punishment would be speculation, but I would doubt it will be mild."
