Fan placed under arrest during Celtics-Spurs game

A fan was arrested Wednesday night in Boston for throwing a beer onto the court after Celtics star Kemba Walker’s controversial ejection led to a tense scene at TD Garden.

The incident happened in the third quarter when Celtics guard Kemba Walker was ejected with back-to-back technical fouls. Walker was arguing a non-call of an offensive foul on Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge.

Boston trailed San Antonio 76-69 at the time of the incident and went on to lose the game 129-114.

After the game, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said he apologized to Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich for the incident and took time during his postgame news conference to apologize to the entire San Antonio team.

“I hope that person is not allowed in an NBA arena again,” Stevens said.
