Masai Ujiri incident with deputy under investigation. The alleged incident occurred Thursday night on the floor at Oracle Arena in Oakland. At the end of the game Ujiri tried to join the team on the floor. He was stopped by a deputy.
«Mr. Ujiri was unknown to the deputy at that time. He [the deputy] asked him for a credential» said Sgt. Ray Kelly, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office at Associated Press. «He shoved the deputy out of the way and walked toward the court. The deputy pushed back. The president came forward more with a more significant push and ended up striking the deputy in the face».
«We had the opportunity to make an arrest and we chose not to» Kelly told The Associated Press. «We decided it would be in everyone’s best interest to slow things down and do an investigation».
«The incident is being looked at, and we are cooperating with authorities» the Raptors said in statement Friday afternoon. «We look forward to resolving the situation».
