Former NBA player Dominique Wilkins and a former NBA referee got into a fight with each other after wednesday nights game in Atlanta. Former ref Rashan Michel had a serious enough problem with Dominique to approach him during an after game live television taping on the floor.

According to my sources close to this story it went like this:

Atlanta Hawks legend DOMINIQUE WILKINS got into a FIGHT with a former NBA ref after the Hawks game on Wednesday night.

‘Nique was doing a live post-game broadcast when 36-year-old Rashan Michel approached and started cursing at him. He claims Dominique owes him $13,000 for some custom suits.

Police say Michel followed Dominique across the basketball court, then started SWINGING . . . so Dominique fought back. Michel was arrested and booked on one count of simple battery.

(–There’s video, in which you can see Dominique land a pretty serious shot to Michel’s face. And in Michel’s mugshot you’ll notice he’s got a nice shiner going.)
Not surprisingly, Michel tells a different story. He says he was trying to work out the dispute CALMLY, and Dominique yelled “(Eff) you!” At that point, security restrained Michel . . . and then Dominique attacked HIM.

Michel says he plans to sue.

Dominique Wilkins is waay too old to be getting in to fights! Plus, it ain’t like he’s broke. So why not pay the man if you really owe him that kind of money?
