Charles Oakley Cleared of Assault Charges, Still Banned From MSG

Charles Oakley’s misdemeanor assault charges—for his part in a scuffle at Madison Square Garden last season—were dismissed by a Manhattan judge on Friday.

As part of a plea deal, Oakley still can’t enter MSG for another six months.

From ESPN’s Ian Begley:

The criminal case stemming from Charles Oakley’s run-in with Madison Square Garden security last February has been dismissed and sealed, according to a public information official. […]

In August, Oakley agreed to a deal — an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal — to have criminal charges dropped and expunged from his record if he adhered to the agreement.
