Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins was reportedly arrested–and then released on bond–on Thursday for an incident in July in which he punched a female in the face with a closed fist.
According to TMZ, “Perkins and his brother-in-law Quincy Alpough were outside Nox nightclub in Harris County, Texas when they got into an altercation with a woman named Mikeeta Cotton,” who “claims she was driving her car in front of the club and got into a fender bender with Alpough’s female cousin.”
A melee ensued and Cotton claims Perkins “punched her brother in the head … and then smacked her in the face with a closed fist.”
Police reportedly “investigated the situation and decided there was enough evidence to charge Perkins with misdemeanor assault. He was released on $1,000 bond.”
