Though Oakland remained peaceful Sunday night following the Golden State Warriors' loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the last game of the NBA finals, a fan from inside Oracle Arena was critically injured when he was reportedly pushed over a second deck railing.
In a statement sent to media Sunday night, a Warriors spokesperson said that "following tonight's basketball game, it was reported that there was a post-game altercation between fans that resulted in one individual falling over a railing." According to the East Bay Times, that fall was the result of a shove from another attendee at Sunday's game, a push that sent the victim from the second deck to the first deck near Section 220 of Oracle Arena.
The victim, described thus far only as "a male in his early 20s" by Oakland Police Department spokesperson Officer Johnna Watson, was transported to an area hospital in critical but stable condition. An update on his status was not available as of publication time.
Outside the arena, however, Oakland was calm in the face of loss. Though KTVU reports that OPD "increased the number of officers this evening in key areas of the city such as Oracle Arena and downtown," other than "one side-show in East Oakland that quickly disbursed" and a Roman candle that was set off in the Oracle Arena parking lot, police had little mayhem to thwart, ABC 7 reports.
In the case of the brawl inside the Arena, Watson says that police are "reviewing surveillance footage" and have interviewed witnesses to the altercation. As of 9:30 p.m. Sunday, the East Bay Times reports, no arrests had been made, nor was any suspect information available. The Warriors organization asks that any witnesses to the fight contact the OPD's Assault Unit at 510-238-3426.
