Hood was fined $35,000 by the NBA on Friday when he knocked a cell phone out of a fan’s hand after being ejected from Wednesday’s game against the Washington Wizards, ESPN reported.

The 6-foot-8 reserve guard was ejected after picking up his second technical foul during Utah’s 107-104 victory. As he left the court, a fan sitting in a seat at Capitol One Arena in Washington appeared to be taking a photo or video of Hood’s exit. As Hood walked past the fan, he slapped the cell phone out of the man’s hand, ESPN reported.

“I apologized to the man. It wasn't intentional,” Hood said Friday. “I regret it. You just learn from it and move on from it.”

Hood is the fourth player to be fined for an incident with a fan. Previously, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyrie Irving and Austin Rivers each were fined $25,000, ESPN reported.
