Clipper Darrell, a towering presence at Clippers games for the past two decades, was struck Monday night in a fight with arena security in the concourse.

In a video of the incident shared by TMZ, Darrell can be seen arguing with a man in blue during Monday night’s game against the Celtics.

As Darrell, real name Darrell Bailey, tries to get away from the conflict, the man in red blocks his way. Lee Zeidman, president of Crypto.com Arena, told TMZ that the incident started with security directing Bailey and other fans to nearby exits.

It’s not clear what aggravated him, but Darrell then swung his right arm to push the guard away from him. The man responded by being cold, sending him to the ground and seemingly unconscious.

The security guard was fired and arrested.

“Clipper Darrell got into a verbal and then a physical confrontation,” Zeidman said. “Daryl received immediate medical attention and was transported to a nearby hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

“An investigation has been initiated into the incident, which determined that the employee’s behavior was in direct violation of our training, and warranted responses by the LAPD to the employee’s immediate termination and arrest.”

Clipper Darrell, 55, told TMZ early Wednesday that he is still suffering from severe pain and headaches from the incident.
