[photogallerylink id=11310 align=left]Ron Artest is known to be the most vicious player in the NBA today, so to see him playing peacemaker? Is a bit of a shock to some. But I guess it all depends on the situation he is confronted with?
According to the crew at TMZ.com:
Los Angeles Lakers star Ron Artest helped break up a ferocious man vs. woman fistfight in front of an L.A. nightclub this weekend … and TMZ obtained footage of the entire incident.
Artest had just left a club — and was walking down Hollywood Blvd. when a woman and a man began to throw punches at each other RIGHT NEXT to the NBA superstar.
After some bobbing and weaving, 6’7″, 260 pound Artest stepped in and quickly separated the two combatants. Once both fighters were restrained, Artest got into a waiting vehicle and went home.
TMZ spoke with Artest who told us, “Unfortunately there was a situation at the club and some people had too much to drink, and got unruly and aggressive. I tried to diffuse the situation. Some people just don’t think clearly when they’ve had too much to drink — it’s an unfortunate reality. ”
We also spoke with the female fighter — who admits she was “wasted” … but insists the other guy instigated the violence.
Congrats to Ron Artest for being a hero in that situation!! How many other guys standing around that same area did the same thing? None!!
