Security Intervenes After Man Confronts Sky's Chennedy Carter

Security was forced to step in and keep an angry man with a camera from approaching Chicago Sky guard Chennedy Carter at the team hotel in Washington, D.C., ahead of a matchup against the Washington Mystics.

Carter, of course, came under fire for her shoulder check on Indiana Fever rookie and face of the WNBA Caitlin Clark in a game last weekend.

Team security was able to de-escalate the encounter between the man and Carter, ESPN reported.

""WOW!!! Thank GOD for security," forward Isabelle Harrison posted to X. "My teammate being harassed at our hotel is insane! Couldn't even step off the bus!!!"

Sky forward Angel Reese and others also posted about the incident.

Reese wrote, "finding out our teams hotel to pull with a camera as we get off the bus and put it in my teammates face & HARASS her is NASTY WORK. this really is outta control and needs to STOP."

"We have security, and they did a great job of de-escalating the situation/protecting us," Onyenwere posted. "It's still extremely weird & crosses the boundaries meeting us right when we get off the bus."

"I wasn't present for the interaction from earlier, but what occurred isn't acceptable," forward Brianna Turner posted. "Didn't realize that when we said 'grow the game' that would be interpreted as harassing players at hotels....Yes we (thankfully) travel with security, but the absurd headlines recently has certainly created an unstable environment for our safety."

Carter has come under fire for not only her shoulder check of an unsuspecting Clark, but for later telling reporters she has "no regrets." Reese was also seen celebrating the play.
