Nets fan with prosthetic leg carried out of MSG for 'unruly' behavior
Wednesday December 3rd, 2014

Madison Square Garden police had their hands full Tuesday night with an uncooperative Brooklyn Nets superfan.

Jeffery Vanchiro, a.k.a. Jeffrey Gamblero, is a graffiti artist and former professional poker player who doubles as one of the Nets most visible fans thanks to his love of neon, reports The New York Times.

Vanchiro was in attendance when the Nets visited the crosstown rival New York Knicks on Tuesday night and was "being onbnoxious and yelling," according to a nearby fan interviewed by ESPN.

After receiving several warnings, Vanchiro, who lost the lower portion of his left leg in an accident when he was 21, was carried kicking and screaming out of the venue by a group of security guards with his unceremonious exit captured on tape by other fans in the building.
