Paul George was ejected from the Pacers-Bulls game on Saturday after he kicked a ball and hit a woman in the face.
It happened after a third personal foul was called on George, and it appears that it was simply frustration that got the best of him.

George went over to the woman and apologized by giving her a hug. Per the Pacers’ Pat Boylan, the woman actually works for Fox Sports.
