2004: A fight that broke out on court during an NBA game between the Indiana Pacers and the Detroit Pistons spills into the stands at The Palace of Auburn Hills when Pacers forward Ron Artest goes after a fan after being hit with a drink thrown by another fan. Artest's actions sparked a massive brawl between players and fans that stretched onto the court and ended with multiple suspensions, including an 86-game ban for Artest, the longest suspension for an on-court incident in NBA history.
