On Saturday, the Los Angeles Kings were in Detroit to take on the Wings. At the end of the second intermission an entire section of the arena had to be cleared out since three clowns had made their way into the rafters, a la Jean Claude Van Damme in Sudden Death. The main difference is that was a movie and this is, you know, real life.
And what about those fans on the catwalk? Three fans somehow found their way into a restricted area on the fifth floor of the arena. Two of them were captured on the catwalk and escorted to safety. Another climbed up onto a conduit one level higher, then seemed to panic a bit. It took a while to bring him down.And by "escorted to safety," I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that is a nice way of saying "arrested."
The fans in Section 124, directly below the three fans, were ushered back to their seat midway through the third period.
