Allen Iverson Does Not Have Your Back
Total Pro Sports- Things are just not going right for the Detroit Pistons Allen Iverson the days. Not only is having one his worst seasons in recent memory, but the latest reports from the Associated Press are indicating that a 2005 bar fight involving one his body guards, will cost the hoops star $260,000.
“NBA star Allen Iverson must pay $260,000 for standing idly by and watching his bodyguard beat up another man in a 2005 bar fight, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.
Bar patron Marlin Godfrey accused Iverson’s bodyguard, Jason Kane, of punching, kicking and hitting him with a bottle because he refused to vacate the VIP section at Washington club Eyebar to make way for the basketball star and his entourage. Godfrey suffered a concussion, a ruptured eardrum, a burst blood vessel in his eye, a torn rotator cuff, cuts and bruises, and emotional injuries.” (Associated Press)
Well A.I., look on the bright side, the guy was originally suing for $20 million and all he got was a measly $260,000. For a self proclaimed “money bagz” like Iverson (check out the tattoo on his hand in the pic), I’m sure that $260 grand is not that big of a deal.
