Enjoying a college basketball game from the sidelines apparently wasn't enough for one fan during a matchup between Hawaii and UC Santa Barbara on Thursday night.

With the Rainbow Warriors trailing the Gauchos 30-16 late in the first half, officials issued a technical foul to Hawaii head coach Gib Arnold. Arnold stepped onto the court to argue the call and had to be restrained by one of his players. As Arnold walked back to the bench, a fan ran onto the court and charged the coach, shouting in his face. Hawaii players shoved the fan out of the way before he ran off the court still yelling.
