Kendrick Perkins Claims Innocence Following Arrest


Kendrick Perkins’ lawyer says his client did nothing wrong when he found himself in handcuffs this past weekend. From kiiitv (via I am a GM): “Perkins was arrested early Saturday morning after what Beaumont police call a disturbance at The Ticket sports bar, off College Street. The Oklahoma City Thunder center was booked in the Jefferson County Jail and released a short time later after posting bond. Police say Perkins threatened to get physical with club management and was arrested for Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct. In a press released obtained by 12 News HD, Beaumont attorney Langston Scott Adams says, quote ‘Mr. Perkins has maintained his innocence to the charges and is recovering at home with family suffering from injuries he received during the incident.’ Adams claims witnesses are giving different accounts to what happened Saturday morning than what Beaumont police are reporting.”

    I played against his dad in New Zealand (where he played for many years) and he was known for a drinking problem, remember coach saying”this game depends on how much Kenny’s had to drink, lol cause I was young thinking “what you mean drinking too much cola”?

    imagine that…he was hurt, and I’m guessing the mngr and all the cops were white….doesn’t surprise me, that’s what’s wrong. I wish I could make a big deal everytime the cops do something to me.

    Manager & several PD on location were NOT white. Just because you have $$$ to throw around does not mean the bar will stay open past 2am and $$$ does not make you above the law. Rules are rules, no matter who you are. Nothing racist about this incident. K-Perk had already been to the hospital the morning before for an altercation at Steven Jackson’s house and told the media he could not participate in his camps celebrity game, which was canceled. K-Perk did not show up for the camp banquet because he was dehydrated so he elects to get drunk that night with his homies. What does this show the youth he was supposed to be promoting?
