NBA Coach Allegedly Beaten By ARIA Security Goons

The Center of Beatdowns, Shifted.

Former NBA player turned Assistant Coach Charles Oakley has sued ARIA and a slew of security guards at ARIA for following him to his room, handcuffing him and engaging in a "gang-style beatdown" which sent Oakley to the Emergency room at Desert Springs hospital.

Pix or it didn't happen? Well... here they are from a host at Caesars Palace's Twitpic account. Holy crap.

Read the horrifying account at Vegas Inc.


Comments & Discussion:

The twitpics are showing as being from 344 days ago. The account itself doesn't seem to be valid on twitter anymore.

If this is in fact tied to Aria security, this is a nightmare from a PR move, although if it happened last year, I imagine the fallout would be a bit less. Can't think of any situation where injuries like that would be justified from hotel security intervention, outside of Oakley assaulting people.

Nevermind, just realized the point was the incident was from last year, the news is he just filed this month. I'll go have another now.

And the Cosmo tranny thought SHE had it bad!

Why did he take a year to file? And who is nuts enough to try to subdue a guy the size of Oak Tree (his nickname when he was on the Bulls)?

@levans I haven't read the complaint, but I'd assume he alleges an intentional tort, so he'd have a 2 year statute of limitations in which to file. Often, attorneys advise their clients to complete medical treatment before filing suit, so that the full measure of their damages can be assessed. Injuries such as those presumably being alleged here may necessitate physical therapy, subsequent doctor care for lasting effects, etc.
