WATCH: Nets Fan Taken Out Of MSG By Security Guards Without Prosthetic Leg

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- You certainly don't see this everyday.

On Tuesday night during the Knicks-Nets game at Madison Square Garden, a Nets fan was taken out of the arena by security guards without his prosthetic leg.

The incident was caught on video and posted on the web.

The ejected fan has been identified as Jeffrey Gamblero, who is well-known for dancing at Barclays Center. He often appears on video screens during Nets games.

"An unruly fan was ejected after MSG security received multiple complaints from fans sitting in that area," a Knicks spokesperson said in a statement. "The fan was warned multiple times before being removed. He will not be permitted back into Madison Square Garden."

One fan told that Gamblero "was being obnoxious and yelling."

"People were complaining," the fan told the website. "The security surrounded him and carried him out without his leg. I've never seen anything like that."

According to, Gamblero's real name is Jeffrey Vanchiro.

On the floor, the Nets (7-9) beat the Knicks (4-15) for the second time this season.
