Oakley was reportedly shouting at Dolan, who eventually called security to escort Oakley from the arena.
Oakley did not cooperate, and ended up hitting and shoving security staff before he was detained.
Here’s more from Dolan (via ESPN):
“It’s not necessarily a lifetime ban,” Dolan said on The Michael Kay Show. “We need to keep the Garden a place that’s comfortable and safe.”
“Yes I understand that he was a big star and a Knick, etc., but that doesn’t excuse people from that kind of behavior,” Dolan said.
“It is very clear to us that Charles Oakley came to the Garden with an agenda.”
