Rafer Alston Sued Over Strip Club Fight

The artist formerly known as Skip to My Lou allegedly hit a fellow strip club patron with a beer bottle over the head. The guy did not like this, and he’s now suing the former baller. From the NY Post (via PBT): “The former NBA athlete, 35, who’s originally from Jamaica, Queens, attacked fellow Perfection Gentleman’s Club patron Erick Franceschini, 32, of Milford, Conn., during a knock-down-drag-out free-for-all in July 2010, according to papers recently filed in Queens Supreme Court. Alston smashed Franceschini with the bottle during a dispute that began in the Woodside, Queens, club and spilled out on the street, said Franceschini’s lawyer, John Rapawy. Alston was not involved in the fight in the bar, Rapawy said, but the lawyer claimed the hoopster attacked Franceschini in the street.”

    Too old to be in fighting, too old to be in a club, and no man should enter a strip club unless he has trouble getting girls naked on his own.

    Funniest post-game interview in a long time was Eddie House after that scuffle. Think Eddie House was lighting Skip up that night leading to a Boston win and he goes, “that’s what happens when you busting a dude’s ass and he gets upset that there’s nothing he can do about it!” Believe he did the Huevos Grande dance too!
