CLEVELAND-- The nation was introduced to 21-year-old James Blair of Ashtabula, the fan who ran on to the court Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena during the Cleveland Cavs and Miami Heat game.

Blair spent the night in jail and is charged with one count of criminal trespassing.

Play was halted in the 4th quarter with just over eight minutes to play in the game and the Cavs down by four.

Blair was escorted off the floor. He was wearing a white t-shirt that read: "We Miss You" on the front of it and "2014 Come Back" on the back of it.

Before being escorted off the court by security personnel, LeBron James acknowledged the fan by reaching out and shaking his hand, then tapping him on the head.

James was asked about the incident following Wednesday's game which the Heat won 98-95. James said, "Well, he said he missed me and come back please. I did not have time to say much to him because security got to him but I patted him on the head."

James said he was not nervous about the fan running onto the floor. It actually happened to him before while he was a member of the Cavaliers team. "That happened before. That happened in the Garden when I was in Cleveland and before we went on the court," James said. "They have metal detectors here, right? So, I knew i was okay."

Criminal trespassing is a fourth-degree misdemeanor.

Blair could be in court as early as Friday to face the trespassing charges.
