Oklahoma City Thunder player Kendrick Perkins was arrested yesterday after allegedly punching a woman in the face back in July.
According to TMZ:
Officials say 28-year-old Perkins and his brother-in-law Quincy Alpough were outside Nox nightclub in Harris County, Texas when they got into an altercation with a woman named Mikeeta Cotton.
Cotton claims she was driving her car in front of the club and got into a fender bender with Alpough’s female cousin. Cotton says the woman attacked her … and Alpough quickly joined in, pushing her and yelling.
Cotton claims Perkins — who’s 6’10″ also entered the fracas and punched her brother in the head … and then smacked her in the face with a closed fist.
A third person says Alpough elbowed her in the throat — knocking her unconscious.
Damn, all of that?
Cops investigated the situation and determined (months later) that there was enough evidence to charge Perkins with misdemeanor assault. He was booked and released on $1,000 bond. Information about the victim isn’t immediately available.
Guess it’s fitting that he would be arrested nearly three months after the incident. After all, it is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
