Everything we know about the 2 teens who broke into the Clippers new $2 billion arena

Getting a private tour of the Clippers’ new $2 billion arena would probably be awesome.

The details on this thing are amazing. Anybody would want to see it — even if it’s not quite completely built out.

The thing is, though, it’s probably not the greatest idea in the world to break in there and give yourself that private tour. It’s an even better idea not to do that and actually show your face on camera while doing it.

And, let’s just say you were to do that for whatever reason. You probably shouldn’t go about positing that footage on social media for everyone to see.

But that’s exactly what some teens who’ve become TikTok famous for breaking into arenas and stadiums have done. Now, it looks like they’re in some deep trouble.

Wait. Someone broke into the Intuit Dome?

Yep. These two teens broke into Steve Ballmer’s new play toy and recorded the entire thing for TikTok while wearing pajamas and Crocs.

Every part of that sentence is pretty unbelievable. Good thing we’ve got it on video.

Yuuuup. They walked through the entire stadium, shot some hoops, emptied a fire extinguisher and caught a glimpse of the city skyline from the top of the arena.

Seems like a fun time. Also, seems very illegal.

Who in the world are they?

We don’t know exactly who these dudes are, but the TikTok account the video was originally posted on was from @shawty_grandmaa.

And, while we don’t know we these dudes are, but Mayor James Butts of Inglewood, California where the stadium is located certainly does. He had some choice words for these teens. Here’s what he told ABC 7.

“It will be very clear to these young men — and to people who are TikTok followers — that you have a moment of TikTok greatness followed by a little bit of misery. We don’t play around with these things.”

Not only has Butts identified the teens, but he’s also figured out who their parents are. They’ve reportedly been contacted.

Is this the first time they've ever done something like this?

Actually, no! Somehow, this is not the first time these dudes have trespassed on the property of a professional sports team.

Here’s an entire video of these same dudes running up in SoFi Stadium.

This is just a thing for them.

Wow. So what will happen to them now?

Well, that’s unclear. Trespassing is a misdemeanor in California, according to the New York Postand carries up to a $1,000 fine and six months of jail time.

It’ll likely be up to Steve Ballmer to decide what he wants to do here considering that the arena is privately owned and funded. We’ll have to wait and see.

But in the meantime, Butts said the city is increasing security around the stadium to keep any wayward wanderers like these two away from the stadium moving forward.

This is all so silly. But this is exactly what happens when you make a fool of yourself on the internet.
