Raptors President Masai Ujiri packs quite a punch, this according to the cop who claims he was struck by him. The officer says he suffered a “serious concussion” and a jaw injury after he was struck by the Ujiri after Game 6.
The cop is, of course, threatening a lawsuit over the incident.
Via TMZ Sports:
“He has a serious concussion; a templar mandibular joint injury, which is a serious jaw injury,” the officer’s attorney David Mastagni told KPIX 5.
The incident went down Thursday in the moments after the Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena in Oakland … the cop says Ujiri got violent over a dispute over credentials.
Alameda County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Ray Kelly said the officer claims Ujiri struck him in the chest and head. Ujiri is being investigated for misdemeanor battery.
“It’s an unprovoked significant hit to the jaw of the law enforcement officer,” Mastagni said.
The lack of video evidence of the incident has helped Ujiri avoid charges up to this point. But it might also work against him in this case, because there’s no evidence of how hard, or not, the officer was hit.
We all know Ujiri likely pulled out a white glove and slapped the officer and didn’t deliver a boxer’s hook.
