Nets Fan Allegedly Uses Fake Leg To Beat Someone, Gets Hauled Off By Security — VIDEO
In today's Huh, That's Random News, some prosthetic leg beating went down at Madison Square Garden last night during a Nets/Knicks match. According to witnesses (including people who—as you can always count on people to do—documented the scuffle for social media, as seen below), Nets "super fan" Jeffrey Gamblero allegedly took off his prosthetic leg to beat someone, although some reports suggest that security was responsible for treating the man poorly. The original story goes like this: For some reason, a Nets fan became so incensed he took off his prosthetic leg and began to beat someone with it, before being hauled of by security. Someone once told me about an episode of the Real Housewives or one of those other hysterical reality shows where a woman attacked another woman with a prosthetic leg. So it's not the first time I've heard of a prosthetic being used as a weapon.
However, it's since been reported that the man in question was not at fault, and that the security guards has mishandled the situation. This conflicting statement was given by someone just named "Max" who was sitting behind Gamblero at the time of the incident (via SBNation):
The mystery continues as to whether or not the prosthetic was used as a weapon or if the security were just being jerks. Either way, this Instagram video of Gamblero being carried away by security guards is fairly harrowing to watch:
