Orlando police say that in a case of road rage, NBA free agent guard Chris Duhon was intentionally struck by a driver following a parking lot argument last weekend. Duhon was taken to hospital by an ambulance. Per Fox 35 Orlando: “According to the police report, Duhon and his brother-in-law, Julio Hernandez, were walking on the level 2C of the parking garage when the driver of a black Lexus started honking at them to get out of the way. Hernandez told police as the Lexus passed by, the driver rolled down his window and some words were exchanged. Then, police said driver stopped, got out of his car and argued face-to-face with Duhon. Hernandez told officers that he separated the driver and Duhon and that he and Duhon kept on walking and the suspect got back into his car. As Duhon and Hernandez got about twenty feet away from the Lexus, Hernandez told police the driver accelerated towards them. Hernandez said he was able to get out of the way, but Duhon was hit. According to the report, Duhon landed on the hood of the car and his head hit the front windshield. The former Magic player was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center by ambulance. Police said when they questioned Duhon about the incident, he didn’t remember anything. They said he plans on pressing charges against the driver of the black Lexus if he is caught. Hernandez said that Duhon was able to walk out of the hospital later that night. Officers are investigating this as an aggravated battery.”
