Rashan Michel Is Suing Dominique Wilkins In Fulton County State Court

As if the story of the fight between former NBA official Rashan Michel and NBA great Dominique Wilkins wasn't odd enough, it gets even stranger.

This feud's been going on for quite a while. 

Court records from Fulton County State Court indicate that Michel filed a lawsuit against Wilkins for the alleged unpaid clothing on April 23, 2010. According to 11Alive.com, Michel claimed that Wilkins owes him $12,072 for six suits, which he sold to "The Human Highlight Film" between January and May of 2009.

Each suit cost $1,500. Michel added a 20-percent late fee for the overdue balance and socked the NBA Hall of Famer with Fulton County's 9-percent sales tax and a $300 shipping and handling fee as part of the transaction, according to a document posted on the television station's website.

It's kind of shocking that with a lawsuit pending, that Michel would approach Wilkins, more or less allegedly try to cold-cock the former Atlanta Hawks star.

Wilkins got the better of Michel on Wednesday night, landing a couple of blows to the trouble-making tailor's face in a fracas that was caught on video. It remains to be seen who will win in a court of law.
