Boos are one thing, chants are another, but what happened at the end of Boston Celtics-Brooklyn Nets Game 4 was unacceptable.

After helping the Nets to a 141-126 victory, Kyrie Irving had a water bottle tossed at him by a fan at TD Garden on his way down the tunnel.

Watch the incident below:

The fan was promptly identified and arrested by TD Garden security. On Monday he was charged with one count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He will appear in Boston Municipal Court on Tuesday.

It's the latest of multiple incidents in the NBA involving inappropriate fan conduct. During Washington Wizards-Philadelphia 76ers Game 2, a Philly fan dumped popcorn on Russell Westbrook's head as he exited the court with an injury. A Utah Jazz fan made lewd, racist comments toward Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant's parents during Game 2 of their series.

Sunday night marked TD Garden's first game at full capacity since early March 2020.
