Nets fan with prosthetic leg is carried out of Madison Square Garden by security

A Nets fan with a prosthetic leg was carried out of Madison Square Garden during Tuesday night's Nets-Knicks game. The man reportedly elicited complaints from other fans about being loud, and was later carried out of the arena by security.

Fans recognized the man and have identified him as Jeffrey Vanchiro-one of the Nets most well-known supporters who is known for wearing neon outfits. The professional poker player goes by the nickname of "Jeffrey Gamblero."


A Knicks spokesman recently released a statement about the incident.


And here's the kicker: An MSG employee said the man used his prosthetic leg as a weapon and hit someone.


But another eyewitness said he never swung the leg.





[UPDATE] Jesse Eigner, the eyewitness who published the Instagram video shown above, recently released his side of the story on Twitter. He said the man brandished his prosthetic leg, but did not mention him swinging it or hitting anyone.


Whether or not the man actually swung the prosthetic leg, this will be an interesting story to follow in the near future. Hopefully we'll get to hear his account of what happened.
