A security guard rushed to the area and jumped into the seats to eject the man, who had interfered with a ball in play. But in the process, he also opted to take the ball from the young boy, which drew the ire from other fans -- as well as team officials.
After initially being escorted away, the man and the young boy were allowed to return to their seats for the remainder of the game.
