  • NBA’s Charles Oakley sues Aria, security officers over alleged ‘beatdown’

    NBA "enforcer" power forward Charles Oakley, now an NBA assistant coach, hit a Las Vegas casino resort with a lawsuit Thursday charging he was beaten and injured by security guards during a May 2010 incident.

    Attorneys for Oakley, 47, filed suit in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas against the Aria hotel-casino at MGM Resorts International’s CityCenter complex on the Las Vegas Strip. Also sued were five named security officers as well as security officers "Does 1-10."

    The suit says Oakley was an invited guest at Aria’s VIP pool area on May 28 when he left the area and was then prevented from re-entering the VIP section by Aria security officers and staff.

    "After a verbal altercation" with security officers, Oakley attempted to return to his room when he was "assaulted" by the officers in a secluded area of the resort, the lawsuit alleges.

    The suit called this a "gang-style beatdown" by at least five security officers and says they wrestled Oakley to the ground, punched him, handcuffed him and detained him before he was taken by paramedics to Desert Springs hospital for treatment in the emergency room.
