Willie Buie, father of Celtics' Marquis Daniels is Tasered, arrested during playoff game

The father of Boston Celtics guard Marquis Daniels was Tasered and arrested during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Orlando Magic at Amway Arena late Tuesday, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Orlando police arrested Willie L. Buie, 55, and charged him with resisting arrest with violence.

A spokesman for the Celtics told the Sentinel that he's in the process of getting information about the incident.

Police reports show officers responded to a disturbance in sections 106-107, the seating behind the basket around 10:55 p.m. EDT.

Officers tried to escort a man, later identified at Buie, from his seat, but the man refused.

It's unclear what prompted officers to remove Buie from the arena.
