Dominique Wilkins won’t face charges for last week’s fight at Philips Arena with former NBA referee Rashan Michel, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Kristi E. Swartz and Michael Cunningham report. Though that report once again cites the briefly popular parody Michel Twitter account as being real, we can trust the rest of the information is valid.
From the only surfaced video of the scrap, it isn’t clear who initiated the violence, though it’s very clearly Wilkins who ended it. Michel has claimed Wilkins started the whole thing, but apparently that’s not the case.
This story isn’t quite over yet, thank the good Lord above. There’s still the matter of a law suit to deal with. If you’ve never paid attention to a law suit involving two men who’ve publicly swung on each other in public as citizen journalists record, I very highly recommend it. A true Southern delicacy.
