Pacers’ Chris Copeland & GF Stabbed & Two Atlanta Hawks Players Arrested

Pacers’ Chris Copeland & GF Stabbed & Two Atlanta Hawks Players Arrested

Seems like the NBA is having a crime infested week as an Indiana Pacer was stabbed and two Atlanta Hawks were arrested Wednesday morning.

Indiana Pacers forward, Chris Copeland, and his girlfriend were stabbed after leaving a NYC nightclub early Wednesday morning.

The attack occurred 4 AM Wednesday morning after couple left 1Oak Nightclub in the Chelsea district of New York. The two were engaged in a conversation when the suspect, 22-year-old Shezoy Bleary who used a switchblade in the attack, interjected and a fight followed. Copeland was stabbed in the arm while his girlfriend was slashed in the arm, breast and butt. Copeland also broke his elbow during the incident and will have to undergo surgery, but thankfully none of their sustained injuries are life threatening. Chris’ GF told the reporters, “We were attacked out of nowhere by a f*cking black civilian. We have nothing to say. We are scared for our lives.”

Fellow Pacers teammate, Paul George, tweeted about the incident saying, “Pray for my brother Chris.”

Additionally, as if the stabbing attack wasn’t enough, two Atlanta Hawks players – Pero Antic and Thabo Sefolosha – were arrested at the scene for attempting to prevent police from setting up a crime scene (obstruction)…sounds a bit strange, don’t you think?

They also were arraigned Wednesday afternoon after leaving the 10th precinct and were each charged with resisting arrest and Obstructing Government Administration. They are due back in court on June 16. According to a complaint, Antic and Sefolosha were asked SIX times to clear the scene but would only “move a couple of feet away but refuse to clear the area.”

During the arrest of Sefolosha, police say he waved his arms, twisted his body and kicked his legs, causing four people to restrain him and place him into cuffs.

Geesh, that’s one hell of a night.

At least Chris and girlfriend are ok. As far as Antic and Sefolosha, looks like the will have a ways to go with the incident.
