Charles Oakley Accepts Dismissal Deal Over Knicks Melee; Agrees to 1 Year Ban

Former New York Knicks great Charles Oakley accepted a deal in a Manhattan court Friday that includes a one-year ban from Madison Square Garden.

Oakley reportedly agreed to an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal for the televised scuffle with two MSG security guards back at a game in February. The altercation allegedly began when Oakley started heckling Knicks’ owner James Dolan, who sat nearby.

If Oak stays out of trouble for six months, the charges will be dismissed and sealed. He didn’t have to admit guilt, and must also steer clear of MSG per a civil trespass affidavit, according to ESPN.

An MSG employee, who witnessed the Feb. 8 incident during the game against the Los Angeles Clippers, alleged that Oakley shouted, “All of you suck Dolan’s d–k!”

Security tried to toss Oakley from the stadium and the confrontation ensued.
