Gerald Laird gets arrested after brawl at Suns-Celtics game

Detroit Tigers fans who found themselves losing patience with catcher Gerald Laird as he slugged his way through a .225 2009 campaign will be interested to know that the 30-year-old backstop was arrested following a brawl at the Phoenix Suns-Boston Celtics game Wednesday.

Laird and his 22-year-old brother Brandon — an infield prospect with the New York Yankees — were allegedly involved in a rhubarb in the lounge area of U.S. Airways Center in which the brothers Laird apparently assaulted the security guards.

Can’t we just have an NBA game without incident, people?
