VIDEO: Dominique Wilkins, Rashan Michel Fighting At Philips Arena After Hawks Game

TMZ has video of Atlanta Hawks Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins dealing damage during his impromptu Wednesday night fight with former NBA referee Rashan Michel. From the footage, it appears Wilkins and at least one security guard have Michel pinned to a row of seats as Wilkins rears back to throw a heavy right, connecting solidly.

After the brief fight, security guards separate the two. I may be getting the two pugilists confused, as the video is shot from very far away, but it looks like Wilkins is walked out to the court, where he throws his coat on the floor and removes his tie while jawing back at Michel, who’s also being corralled by security.

Fans are lingering in the Philips Arena seats, many of them very aware of what’s going on. Several point out Wilkins by name during and after the fight.
