Knicks security carries out one-legged Nets fan (video)


Madison Square Garden security apparently carried out a man whose prosthetic leg had been removed during tonight’s Knicks-Nets game (hat tip: Seth Rosenthal of SB Nation).

This photo, posted by Eric Soufer, from part shows part of the scene before the above video, which was posted by Jesse Eigner:

The Knicks released a statement, via ESPN:

“An unruly fan was ejected after MSG security received multiple complaints from fans sitting in that area,” the Knicks said via a team spokesperson. “The fan was warned multiple times before being removed. He will not be permitted back into Madison Square Garden.”


However, a fan disputes that version of events:

The man carried out by security matches the description of Jeffrey Vanchiro, who often goes by Jeffrey Gamblero, a Nets fan with a prosthetic leg known for his neon outfits.
