The stepfather of Celtics guard Marquis Daniels was arrested Tuesday night at Amway Arena during Boston's Game 2 victory over the Orlando Magic, according to multiple media outlets.

Orlando police arrested Willie L. Buie, 55, and charged him with resisting arrest with violence. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Buie was tased during the incident.

Buie has a long criminal history, including an arrest for second-degree murder. He spent 11 years in prison.

The newspaper reported that police responded to a disturbance in seating behind the basket at 10:55 p.m. When police tried to remove Buie from his seat, he said, "I'm not going, [expletive] you," according to the police report.

The Sentinel reported that it was uncertain why Buie was asked to leave. The disturbance continued at a nearby security office outside of the arena. According to the report, Buie continued to refuse to be handcuffed, which prompted an officer to use his taser, according to the newspaper:

. . . An officer pulled out his Taser, put it up against Buie's back and shot electricity into him for five seconds, the report shows. After he was stunned, Buie put his hands behind his back and was handcuffed.

Daniels grew up in the Orlando area.
