Dominique Wilkins Attacked By Former Ref at Hawks Game

Wilkins, who does TV work for the Atlanta Hawks, was attacked by a guy who used to ref pro and college games, and says ‘Nique owes him money. Judging by the mug shot, the man not only didn’t get his cash, but took quite a beating. Yeesh. The AJC reports: “The man who allegedly attacked NBA Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins after Wednesday night’s game said Wilkins owed him money, Atlanta police said. Rashan S. Michel, 36, was arrested and charged with one count of simple battery following the incident, Officer K.Y. Jones with Atlanta police told the AJC. Michel, who told police he was owed money for suits purchased several years ago, hit Wilkins in the chest and also hit a security guard, Jones said. Michel, of Atlanta, has worked as an NBA and college basketball referee and previously owned his own clothing store.”

    Took the man’s money, articles of clothing and then beat him up.
    And, THEN the man went to the “big house”. Sometimes you can’t win for losing, man.
