A Toronto Raptors fan has been arrested after making vulgar comments about Ayesha Curry during an interview on live TV following the team’s Game 2 NBA Finals loss to the Golden State Warriors.

According to Toronto police, Tristan Warkentin, 28, has been charged with one count of “mischief – interfere with lawful operation of property” for allegedly uttering “profane phrases” during an interview outside the Raptors’ arena. 

Video of the incident, in which a man made a reference to sexual assault involving the wife of Warriors star Stephen Curry, immediately surfaced on social media.

Speaking with the Toronto Sun, Warkentin said, “what I did was disgraceful; it was an alcohol-influenced situation.”

When asked whether he would apologize to Kelly Linehan, the CP24 reporter who interviewed him, Warkentin said he planned to “reach out to Mr. and Mrs. Curry” because “that’s realistically who I feel I owe an apology to – and maybe Toronto.”

Warkentin is scheduled to appear in court on July 11.
