IFWT_Antic Sefolosha

The main story was the condition of Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland who was stabbed by a man after he left the popular New York nightclub 1oak.  Also at the club were Atlanta Hawks Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic who were both arrested after the melee for reportedly trying to prevent the police from setting up a crime scene and resisting arrest.  Seflosha and Antic released a joint statement saying they were innocent and would fight the charges, now we have video of their arrest.

Thabo Sefolosha was grabbed around the neck and flung to the ground, in a struggle with several NYPD officers during his Wednesday arrest.

Before the video begins, Thabo’s teammate Pero Antic was already sitting on the curb, subdued by police.

But when cops tried to corral Thabo, something went wrong and a scuffle breaks out between the NBA player and six officers.

At one point during the struggle, you can see an officer reach out and grab Thabo by his neck while two other officers help take the 6’7″, 220-pounder down to the ground.

Eventually, Thabo is placed in cuffs and officers walk him down the street, while onlookers shout obscenities in French directed toward the police.

Thabo suffered a fractured tibia during the incident and will miss the remainder of the season, which is a blow for the No. 1 seed Atlanta Hawks.
