Weird story surrounding former Celtics center Kendrick Perkins.
From KHOU in Houston:
Kendrick Perkins, who lives in Tomball and plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder, posted a $1,000 bond Thursday morning on the misdemeanor assault charge.
His brother-in-law, Quincy Alpough, faces the same charge.
According to court documents, the incident happened back in July outside the Nox nightclub in the 4700 block of Nett.
The case was initially dismissed, but Perkins and Alpough were charged when it was re-filed.
Miketta Cotton told police she and her brother were leaving the club when their car and another vehicle "backed into each other."
Cotton said she got out to talk with the male driver. She said a female passenger suddenly jumped out of the car, pulled her hair back and began taking off her jewelry like she was ready to fight.
Cotton said she calmed the woman down, but then Alpough got out of the car and pushed her stating, "That’s my cousin!"
When Ja’Keenan Cotton saw his sister being pushed, he got out of the car to check on her. He told police Perkins, a passenger in the other car, punched him in the head, causing him to fall to the ground.
Cotton said Perkins then punched her in the face with a closed fist, causing her to fall down.
Catherine McGrue, who was in the car with the Cottons, said Alpough struck her in the throat with his elbow, knocking her unconscious.
All three victims say a group of people then kicked them repeatedly while they were lying on the ground.
Ja’Keenan Cotton recognized Perkins and Alpough, according to court documents.
At least one witness backed up their story.
Ok, sorting through the details. (all allegedly)
- Perk was in a fender bender at a Houston club.
- A woman in Perk's car then got out of the car and started getting hostile.
- Perk's brother-in-law then got out of the car and started yelling.
- A man in the other car then got out of the car to check on things.
- Perk then got out of the car and started punching people in the face. Both the guy who got out of the car, and the woman involved.
- Perk's brother-in-law then elbowed another woman in the neck, knocking her unconscious.
- A "group of people" then kicked all the people who were knocked to the ground.
Yea, there's some definite parts of this story that seem suspicious. For example, Perk's entire car deciding to start hurting people seemingly out of the blue after a minor car accident. Also the fact that the case has already been dismissed once before being re-filed, and the fact that Perk is only being charged with a misdemeanor (despite some serious accusations) add to the bizarreness.
I case at the end of the day this is just one of those stories where we wait and see what happens in court (if it gets that far). But man, what a weird couple of paragraphs to read.
