Former Referee Rashan Michel Attacked Dominique Wilkins Over Unpaid Suits
Former Atlanta Hawks nine-time All-Star Dominique Wilkins was attacked following the Hawks-Magic game in Atlanta Wednesday night by former referee Rashan Michel.
We’re not joking.
Michel reportedly told police he went after Nique because he was owed money for suits purchased several years ago. Anyone who’s seen Dominique dress knows he can’t owe him more than 50 or 60 bucks, as BSO comically noted.
The best part of the story is that “Nique landed three solid blows on his alleged attacker, who swung at Nique but didn’t land anything solid” according to a tweet by Sekou Smith. The next step is getting video of this incident. How is it possible not to have a clip from the Human Highlight Reel? This has to beat any dunk he ever accomplished, right?
As for Michel, he reffed 54 NBA games from ’97-’98 and according to his Covers profile, he seemed to have low-scoring games. He’s also reffed 49 college games in his career according to Stat Sheet. Most notably, Michel is also now 0-1 in his unofficial boxing career.
