Former Knicks Player Charles Oakley Arrested After Altercation at Madison Square Garden

Charles Oakley, the former Knicks great and frequent outspoken critic of team owner James Dolan, was involved in an ugly incident at Wednesday night's game and the Twitter response was immediate.

On Friday, Michael Kay reported that Oakley had been banned from MSG for life, but Dolan denied it was necessarily a lifetime ban in an appearance on Kay's radio show.

Garden security was concerned about Oakley because the former hard court star sat down and immediately started screamed obscenities at Knicks owner James Dolan and his assistant, who were sitting a few rows ahead, the source told Fox 5 News.

The announcement comes just two days after Oakley was escorted from his seats at Madison Square Garden and arrested after an altercation that happened near Dolan. The fact that Dolan refuses to meet with Oakley is petty as hell, but now he's blocking him from entering MSG, which is not going to help cease the tension between them. Oakley added that he had done nothing wrong and paid for the tickets. "I don't know what the f- they're looking at, but they're getting on my f-ing nerves", Oakley is alleged to have said, according to the testimony.

"I said why do you guys keep staring at me". "They got cameras following me all the way down to my seat".


Just another reason to hate loser James Dolan.

"There are dozens of security, staff employees and NYPD that witnessed his abusive behavior".

After Oakley was released late Wednesday night, he went to Jimmy's BBQ, a restaurant across the street from the Garden, and taped an Instagram video giving a rawer version of the events. "Everything he has said since the incident is pure fiction".

The entire ordeal continues coming back to Dolan, who has run the Knicks and Madison Square Garden with a pettiness rarely seen in professional sports. I know what I did.

The fracas surrounding Oakley, 53, lit up social media, with current and former National Basketball Association players and fans bashing his ejection as "sad" and disrespectful to a fan favorite nicknamed the "Chairman of the Boards".
