Everyone knows that TV crews are more than just a little familiar with the intricacies of the country's sports venues. This applies to stadium and arena security as well, especially if there are potential breaches.

So local crew members at one multipurpose arena weren't exactly surprised when a man slipped through the venue's vaunted security web around 3:00 PM on a game day and managed to get down to the service & locker room level before being stopped.

Not that he needed additional help getting inside the building, but the man was also armed with a gun. He peacefully relinquished his weapon when he was finally detained.

Somehow this story has gone unreported by the mainstream media, leaving shaken and embarrassed arena management breathing several signs of relief.

No word if the venue's security measures are being re-evaluated.

Do you think it will matter?
