Charles Oakley to sue over Madison Square Garden incident, report says

Months after being publicly embarrassed by Knicks owner James Dolan by being manhandled out of Madison Square Garden, ex-Knicks enforcer Charles Oakley has chose to file a lawsuit against the embattled club owner/struggle blues bander.

The Madison Square Garden Company is a holding company, which is engaged in live experiences consisting of celebrated venues, sports teams, and entertainment productions.

In the meantime, Dolan speculated without any evidence while speaking with ESPN New York Radio's Michael Kay that Oakley "may have a problem with alcohol".

Oakley says things came to a head on February 8. when Dolan ordered security to remove him from the building and a physical altercation ensued.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the 53-year-old New York Knicks legend will be filing a civil lawsuit targeting James Dolan, stemming from the incident where he was forced to leave his seat and escorted by security personnel.

"By propagating these blatant lies about Mr. Oakley, Defendants Dolan and MSG have caused irreparable harm to his name and career and discriminated against him based on the false perception that he is an alcoholic, all in a transparent attempt to denigrate his standing among Knicks fans", the lawsuit says.

Destiny 2 is about to have its first scheduled downtime period, due to maintenance. It's why many are still concerned that this has happened in the first place.

Following the scuffle, Oakley was charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of criminal trespass. He eventually accepted a plea deal that basically cleared him of charges as long as he didn't get arrested again for six months. In a tweet sent out by the team's public relations account that night, Oakley was said to have "behaved in a highly inappropriate and completely abusive manner". He has a problem with anger.

Oakley's lawsuit also says he does not know when his feud with the Knicks owner began. He may have a problem with alcohol. They said, 'What, is it Dolan?' I talked to maybe a million people.

His lawyer said Oakley didn't need a trial to prove his innocence.

The defendants did not immediately respond to requests for comment. It points out that "the Knicks, once one of the NBA's premier franchises in its largest market", while Oakley was on the team, has since "fallen into disarray, having advanced as far as the second round of the playoffs only twice in the previous ten years".

Oakley asserts through the lawsuit that it was apparent Dolan had directed his ouster when a security guard loudly asked: "Why are you sitting so close to Mr. Dolan?"
