Warriors ticket holder disputes police’s story about Masai Ujiri

Masai Ujiri Raptors

A Golden State Warriors season ticket holder is disputing part of the police’s account of an incident involving Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri after Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

Ujiri was accused of hitting an Alameda County sheriff deputy in the face while trying to get onto the court to celebrate his team’s championship. The altercation allegedly stemmed from an issue over the president’s credentials.

Greg Wiener, a 61-year-old Warriors fan, says he was standing next to the officer when the incident occurred. He says the officer did not ask for credentials nor did Ujiri strike the officer in the face.

The AP’s Rob Gillies shared Wiener’s comments:

Wiener felt compelled to speak out after seeing the police’s comments.

The police say they are pursuing a misdemeanor charge against Ujiri over the incident.

Ujiri, 48, has been with the Raptors since 2013 after previously leading the Denver Nuggets. He helped deliver the team’s first championship in franchise history.
