A police officer was allegedly pushed and hit in the face by a Toronto Raptors executive who was trying to get onto the court after Game 6 of the NBA Finals at Oakland’s Oracle Arena on Thursday, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said, according to multiple published reports.

The alleged incident occurred shortly after the Raptors took down the Golden State Warriors to win the first championship in franchise history. Officials said the officer denied the executive court access because he didn’t have proper credentials.

NBC Bay Area, citing witnesses on the scene, said the executive involved was identified as team president Masai Ujiri, and a video posted after the game appears to show Ujiri and an officer being held back from each other.
