Vine: Will Ferrell escorted out by security after hitting cheerleader in the face
The incident occured during halftime at Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans game.
Will Ferrell was escorted out by security after hitting a cheerleader in the face with a basketball.
The actor was attempting a 'half-court' shot during half time of the game, but instead can be seen running towards one of the Pelicans' cheerleaders before launching the basketball at her.
The cheerleader is seen crumpling to the ground as the basketball hits her in the head.
Ferrell was then forcibly removed from the arena by security.
Reports suggest that the stunt was actually part of an upcoming film starring Mark Wahlberg, entitled 'Daddy's Home'.
