Alleged stalker arrested after interrupting Lakers-Nuggets game

May 06, 2012|By Mark Medina

NBA players always learn to anticipate the unexpected in playoff games. But hardly anyone could anticipate this. Late in the first half of the Lakers' eventual 92-88 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday at Pepsi Center, a woman walked from her courtside seat onto the court. She nearly made it to the three-point line as she approached Denver guard Ty Lawson as he dribbled the ball. Before anything could escalate, a referee and security official escorted the woman away.

The Denver Post's Yesenia Robles and Kurtis Lee reported the woman was 20-year-old Savannah McMillan, 20, who was arrested and cited for trespassing. She reportedly did not appear intoxicated but was disoriented.

In the video below, TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager cited arena security sources indicating the woman had a history of "stalking or following several players" and that she had already been banned from the Pepsi Center.

Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears talked to sources who believe McMillan is the same woman who stalked current Clippers forward Kenyon Martin, who played for the Nuggets from 2004 to 2010. Unaware that Martin no longer plays with Denver, McMillan reportedly was screaming "where is Kenyon" to the Nuggets' bench before running onto the floor.
