Jeff Overton has never been the quiet type, and he definitely wasn’t going quietly when he was asked to leave an Indiana Hoosiers basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Dec. 9.

Overton, who was supporting his alma mater, was asked to leave midway through the first half of the game against Louisville. He tweeted the following shortly after the incident occurred, which has since been deleted.

“If Louisville gonna hit someone every time down court like they did when they won championship? Why they kicking me out! ??????????”

It’s unclear why Overton was escorted out, but this wasn’t the first time he has run into trouble supporting his team. The Evansville Courier & Press reported that Overton was arrested for disorderly conduct and public intoxication following an Indiana-Kentucky basketball game in December 2011.

Overton was a member of the 2010 U.S. Ryder Cup Team and is currently sitting 286th on the World Golf Rankings.
