LeBron James fan who stormed court during Heat/Cavs game in Cleveland jail

CLEVELAND - The LeBron James fan who stormed the Quicken Loans Arena court and high-fived LeBron during Wednesday night's Cavs/Heat game remains behind bars Thursday.

According to the Cleveland City Jail, the 21-year-old man was arrested for trespassing, but has not been charged at this time.

Storming the court appears to have been a pre-planned concept. The fan tweeted about a special shirt he had made and that when he says he is going to do something, he will do it. He also tweeted photos of police at the end of his row.

The fan's shirt read "We Miss You" on the front and "2014 come back" on the back.

Cleveland blew a 27-point lead to Miami in a 98-95 loss, as the Heat extended their win streak to 24 games.

Tad Carver, spokesman for the Cavaliers, issued this statement following the incident:

"We already have tight security measures, however after taking a closer look at last night's incident we are immediately implementing additional security measures."
