Restaurant Brawl, Starring Tim Thomas?

Tim Thomas has been (rightly) accused of dogging it his whole career. One thing that doesn’t lack intensity, though, are his fights (allegedly): “Thomas, another man and three women entered the Denny’s. Damien Pettie, 29, recognized Thomas and told police that he stated, ‘What’s up?’ Thomas told him not to talk to him, using curse words and racial and anti-gay epithets. Pettie responded with profanity. The man with Thomas then struck Pettie twice in the face, splitting his lip. ‘Then all parties within both groups began to throw chairs, knock over tables, and fight each other’ until the store manager told them he was going call police. A suspect, identified as Thomas, threw a chair that struck Moya Kissick in her left side. Thomas and his group then left the restaurant before police arrived. Colleen Kissick, 29, said she and her mother had been out celebrating her mother’s 65th birthday, which was Tuesday. They had just gotten their food when the fight suddenly erupted without warning and her mother got hit with a chair.”

    Tim Thomas should have just been glad somebody recognized him.

    Who celebrates their moms birthday at 3am!?

  • http://dfinney0415@yahoo.com KR

    That WWE experience must’ve really rubbed off on him…

  • LB

    Wow, I thought they had those nailed down chairs at Denny’s. Who knew?

  • tavoris

    why is he in Denny’s? When did they start serving black people?

  • AP

    According to the article this whole thing went down @ 3 AM…why is this Moya Kissick celebrating her bday @ 3 AM?
    Did this 65 yr old have a late night party session for her bday?
    Kinda strange…

  • Tommy Patron

    Some day one of these ballplayers (& their entourages) who acts like this is going to start it with someone who is crazy, armed or both.

    co-sign tavoris.

    also, can we at least get chili’s for the bday celebration? i’d have even accepted ihop. denny’s is the red-headed stepchild of 24-hour breakfast joints.

  • tavoris

    Why doesn’t someone who has ripped off multiple NBA teams for MILLIONS order take-out?

  • Ghost (of Oliver Miller)

    Damien Pettie is fugazi

  • tavoris

    @chiqo-I guess he didn’t know that the food is better at Waffle House.

  • tavoris

    lol@ Ghost

    @Tommy Patron, I’m pretty sure it happened with Jamal Tinsley… Or was it someone else..

  • riggs

    i already know what he said “dont f***ing talk to me you g*y a*s n***a”

  • Fat Lever

    Maybe Tim Thomas was just asking the dude if he wanted the Rutti Tutti Fresh and Fruity, and dude took it as an anti-gay reference.

    “Until the store manager told them he was going call police.” WTF? Why didn’t the manager call police after the first punch was thrown? Why not at least after the first chair was thrown? Did the manager REALLY have to wait until they were notified that he’d call them before actually doing so? I swear, people are stupid.

    If her mom was 45, MAYBE I’d understand. They could have gone to a night club. I know a lot of 35-45 year old women who think they are still 19 and put their parenting duties on hold every weekend so they can go out and play cougar (or Puma, in the case of those who are 30+). At 65? The old lady should have been in bed by mid-night, tops.

  • http://slamonline.com Brad Long

    I wonder if he waved his hand in front of his face after he hit her with the chair?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Damn, all the good jokes are already taken.

  • heartlandG

  • tavoris

    it was Stephen Jackson, but I think Tinsley & David Harrison were with him.

  • Cizzo

    If Tim Thomas was invovled in it was a Bum fight forreal!!

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    One, why would somebody with NBA money eat at Denny’s?
    Two, Tim Thomas apparently is not a fan of Budweiser commericals.

  • vtrobot

    was he recognized because of the double, criss-crossed headbands? happy BD ms. kissick. feel better.

  • tavoris

    Allenp-I’ve been pondering that for the last couple of hours. I’m only a thousandaire, and I know better.

  • Orlando Woolridge

    oh man, that’s some funny sh!t, Brad Long.

  • Dallas J

    ya’ll i have been to this same Dennys in the wee hours many times and theres ALWAYS something to see there ! no doubt!

  • Robb

  • davidR

  • http://joe@aol.com Mike

    I haven’t had any in a while. I’m going to holla at Moya Kissick . . . 65, likes to party, and just got hit in the face with a chair. If I can’t get in those drawers, I’m calling it quits.

  • http://slamonline.com/ niQ

    Brad Long. WOW. LOL

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    10 bucks says that Antoine Walker was the cook making Tim Thomas’ Grand Slam….

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    10 bucks says that Antoine Walker was the cook making Tim Thomas’ Grand Slam….

  • Joe

    @Wayno: Yeah, I bet Antoine was the Cook, because he certainly isn’t going to be handling the register duties.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    ooooo, nice!

  • banthony

    Very hard to believe. I met Tim Thomas once in L.A. and even shook hands he was such a nice guy. He said he loved the fans in L.A.. I guess he was having a bad day.

  • Shem

    Wow Tim Thomas? hahaha if i saw this guy without a jersey i definetly wouldn’t know his name

  • ktokyo

    It’s funny that this dude walks into a restaurant, his friend punches someone in the face, starts throwing chairs – hitting a senior citizen with one in the process and people are blaming the senior citizen for being out past their bedtime….wow.

  • http://fdsjklf.com Jukai

    ktokyo: I don’t think anyone is blaming the senior citizen. They’re trying to make light of the situation that Tim Thomas is a big f*cking tool and will hopefully see some jailtime for this.

  • MikeC.

    This sounds like a case of a bum who is used to being treated like a star, being treated like a bum. I’m no millionaire, but I’ll put my house(I own about 3/250,000th of it) down on a bet that says Pettie said something along the lines of “Hey Tim, you’re out with an injury and nobody in the NBA even noticed, as there are plenty of guys that can go 1 for 7 from 3 on a consistent basis.” Then somebody said something, then somebody said something else, then there was some pushing and shoving, and Collen Kissick said “Hey ma, that guy is tall and black, I bet he plays sports and we can get paid off this. Say he hit your old ass with a chair…on your birthday no less!!!” And here we are. The only thing that could have made it better would be if Isiah Rider was involved in any way at all.

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    look fellas, it was one of the best comment section ever BUT MIKEC. TAKES THE F#CKING AWARD AS THE FUNNIEST SH!T HERE TODAY!!!!!!IM OUT!LMFAO!!!!!and even funnier than how is written is ITS TRUE!!

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/nba/overdribbling/index276.html chiqo

    nah, i gotta give it to brad long. ish was hilarious.

  • Jonny C

    and this has been my favorite comment section ever on this site. Brad Long made me laugh my a** off, Mike was great, MikeC did great too, but I laughed most at Wayno’s comment.

  • http://slamonline acethat

    That’s the reason why I don’t like basketball player from the tri-state areas…

  • Lebran

    I’m still laughing at Brad Long’s comment after about 2 hours.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Looks like you’re still throwing around the N-Word on the slick, huh?
    If you’re going to call somebody a N*gger have the balls to call them one. Don’t trying to hide behind trickery.
    And this time you can’t blame it on Chintao’s insults. Nope, that’s just how you refer to black people you don’t like.

  • Cizzo

    If Tim Thomas was involvled in an altercation it was deffinately a Bumm Fight!

  • Still ballin

    the ‘police’ was officer O’neal and his off-sider “Guns Delonte”.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre
