A woman who has allegedly stalked former Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin was arrested on Sunday night for walking on the court during Game 4 of a playoff series between the Denver Nuggets and the L.A. Lakers, according to CBSSports.com.
It was a bizarre scene that took place during live action in the second quarter. The woman attempted to approach Ty Lawson mid-play, but a referee came between them and she was immediately escorted out of the Pepsi Center.
According to Yesenia Roberts and Kurtis Lee of the Denver Post, 20-year-old Savannah McMillan-Christmas was arrested for her antics and cited for trespassing. Denver Police Department spokesperson Sonny Jackson told the Post that "the woman is not being detained but will appear in court on Monday."
Broadcasters on TNT reported that Christmas has a history of "stalking or following several players," according to CBSSports.com.
According to a tweet by Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, sources claim that the woman was interested in one player in particular on Sunday, who no longer is with the team:
Martin was a member of the Nuggets from 2004-2011 and is now a member of the Clippers.
The Post also notes that Christmas didn't appear intoxicated when she walked onto the court, just disoriented."
The word "stalked" is being thrown around pretty loosely here, as there doesn't seem to be evidence yet that Christmas has approached Martin or other players outside of game situations. Perhaps these accusers should ask Simon Cowell what it means to have a stalker.
