Ron Artest Plays Good Samaritan, Breaks Up Fight

by June 01, 2011

According to TMZ (not usually our go-to source), Ron Artest lived up to his 2010-11 NBA Citizen of the Year billing: “Artest had just left a club — and was walking down Hollywood Blvd. when a woman and a man began to throw punches at each other right next to the NBA superstar. After some bobbing and weaving, 6’7″, 260 pound Artest stepped in and quickly separated the two combatants. Once both fighters were restrained, Artest got into a waiting vehicle and went home.  TMZ spoke with Artest who told us, ‘Unfortunately there was a situation at the club and some people had too much to drink, and got unruly and aggressive. I tried to diffuse the situation. Some people just don’t think clearly when they’ve had too much to drink — it’s an unfortunate reality.'”
