CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Less than 24-hours after a fan ran onto the floor to greet LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers have completed a review of the incident and will adopt additional security measures as a result.

With 8:21 to play in the 4th quarter the fan, who was wearing a tee shirt that read “We Miss You” on one side and “2014 Come Back,” on the other tried to greet LeBron James.

Security quickly restrained and then escorted the fan off of the floor.

“I was a little thrown back by it,” cavaliers coach Byron Scott said Thursday. “I didn’t think he was going to do any harm to anybody. When he ran out there, he looked like he was stumbling.

“My first thought was, I hope he’s OK. And I hope security can get to him fast enough that nothing crazy happens, and they did that. He’s just a fan that wanted to say hello to LeBron.”

The fan was arrested by Cleveland police and cited for trespassing. He will also be prohibited from purchasing Cavaliers tickets in the future.

The team declined to get into specifics as to what measures will be implemented but said that the Cavaliers already exceed NBA standards for arena security and personnel.
