Atlanta Hawks’ Dwight Howard restrained after fan heckles him in Los Angeles

A fan called Howard a "b----", and he understandably didn’t appreciate it.

Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard had to be restrained after the Hawks’ 109-94 loss against the Lakers on Sunday night, after a fan yelled an obscenity at him.

As Howard was making his way off the floor, a fan called him a “b*tch”, which caused Howard to turn around and confront the heckling fan.

Howard had 19 points and nine rebounds in the game, and after a verbal exchange with the fan, security finally took him back to the locker room.

He spent one season in Los Angeles with the Lakers, and left the team in free agency to sign with the Houston Rockets.
