Fan ejected for pushing UNLV player

on


A fan in attendance for Wednesday’s UNLV-New Mexico game was ejected for shoving UNLV’s Anthony Marshall. The fan, wearing a yellow shirt, quickly realized his mistake but was still thrown out.

The refs and arena officials did a good job of containing the situation and stepping in before things got out of hand.

After the game, several Twitter users claimed to know the identity of the fan and stated that, despite his wearing the flag of New Mexico on his shirt, he was actually a UNLV alum. That sparked a hate campaign on Twitter against the identified alum, as well as a hashtag (#f***bromero) that was trending in Las Vegas by the time the night was over.
