Sheriff’s Deputy Claims He Has Concussion After Altercation With Raptors President
The sheriff’s deputy who claims that he was attacked by Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri following Game 6 of the NBA Finals says he has a concussion and is planning to sue.
“He has a serious concussion; a templar mandibular joint injury, which is a serious jaw injury,” the officer’s lawyer David Mastagni told KPIX 5.
Ujiri is now at the center of a criminal investigation.
As we reported, the alleged altercation happened on Thursday after the Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena. Apparently, Ujiri was trying to celebrate with his team, but, didn’t have the right credentials.
Alameda County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Ray Kelly says that the officer claims Ujiri hit him in the chest and head. The unidentified deputy claims he has not been able to return to work.
Ujiri has not commented, but the Raptors say that they are “cooperating with authorities” and “look forward to resolving the situation.”
