I'd only like the guy on the right to play for the Celtics anytime soon

A group of Las Vegas security officers are countersuing Charles Oakley, seeking damages of at least $20,000 for a May 2010 incident — during which Jermaine O’Neal was reportedly present — that they claim was the third of a series of assaults by Oakley on Vegas casino employees since 2005.

Oakley had sued them along with the Aria hotel and casino on May 12, claiming the officers physically attacked him following an argument at the hotel-casino’s Liquid pool. Oakley missed the final 13 games of the season with back problems he claimed stem from this incident, and the Bobcats have since hired assistant coach Robert Werdann (who yours truly received an autograph from back at a St Johns practice in 1989) as a potential replacement should Oakley not be able to return to the bench next season.

Here’s the passage from the Vegas Inc:

Monday’s claim says Oakley was at the Liquid pool at Aria with friends including current Boston Celtics player Jermaine O’Neal when Oakley, who had several large alcoholic drinks, became agitated because it was near closing time and “he and his friends were not allowed to invite additional females into the pool.”

Oakley threw one pool employee off a patio table to the ground, pushed a security officer, threatened others, kicked and punched a few more, elbowed a couple more in the face, spit on another one, swore and “threatened to knock people out,” according to the claim.

Seems like Jermaine O'Neal is one of the witnesses and may have to testify.  I guess Oakley's car washes around NY haven't been doing too well, for him to be needing money so badly.  He has always been a huge jackass in my opinion so this comes as no surprise.  Jermaine seems like a pretty good guy and my recommendation would be to stay away from Oakley.

    I loved the "Oakley threw one pool employee off a patio table" part. What was the employee doing on a table?

    Mildly entertaining.

    It's sad, not entertaining. This man is imploding and it's pathetic that he would carry himself in such a manner. Seven large drinks? Nothing good can ever come from having seven large drinks. Just pathetic that a grown man would behave like a spoiled child!!! Can't say I'm surprised.

    I'm not sure why everyone is assuming that the account of what went on from the folks countersuing Oakley is 100% correct - if you've ever been in a situation, you know that folks usually have conflicting accounts.

    Anon above me, I completely agree. There's three sides to every story... this person's story, that person's story and the truth.
