Oklahoma City Thunder big man Kendrick Perkins was arrested Thursday after allegedly punching a woman in the face outside of a nightclub in July.
Officials say 28-year-old 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. Cotton claims she was driving her car in front of the club and got into a fender bender with Alpough’s female cousin.
Cotton says the woman attacked her and Alpough quickly joined in, pushing her and yelling. Cotton says Perkins — who’s 6’10″ also entered the fracas and punched her brother in the head and then smacked her in the face with a closed fist.
A third person says Alpough elbowed her in the throat — knocking her unconscious.
Cops investigated the situation and decided there was enough evidence to charge Perkins with misdemeanor assault. He was released on $1,000 bond.
