One Lakers fan got a little carried away with celebrating the team's championship victory near the Staples Center, hanging high above the ground from a streetlight and then dropping into the crowd.

A scary moment outside the Staples Center.

After the Los Angeles Lakers won their long awaited 17th NBA championship on Sunday, fans in Los Angeles took to the streets to celebrate. One fan hung and then dropped from a street lamp.

No word yet on if he was hurt, or how badly.

This comes after Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti appealed to fans on Twitter, asking them to stay home and not gather to celebrate due to the pandemic.
