Why is the judge in this case named Richard Ball though? That is a fact by the way.

If that's true the judge had better be very, very careful when Draymond Green approaches the bench.

I can't even criticize because in my younger days I did some beating up and getting beat up, such is life. Maybe the annoying fan deserved to get slapped.

http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Draymond-Green-Agrees-to-Plea-Deal-on-Assault-Charge-387946922.html

Quote:
Draymond Green's criminal case for allegedly slapping a man outside a bar in East Lansing, Michigan finalized Friday, with Green reaching a plea deal, according to his attorney.

According to the deal, penalties for the Warriors power forward will include a $500 fine, a $60 jail restitution and a conditional reduction of the assault charge to a civil infraction, requiring Green to steer clear of criminal offenses and to stay away from the victim.


To be fair, former MSU CB Edmondson had it better than Green's other victims. Just ask Steven Adams.

The best parts are the straight faces when they proclaim that no special treatment was afforded to Green ... our public servants are so accustomed to (bleep) lying right to our faces by now, it's not even worth paying attention.

He received a parking ticket, basically, for committing assault & battery multiple times ... apparently victimizing the same individual twice ... yeah, don't try that at home.

http://nba.nbcsports.com/2017/07/24/draymond-green-reportedly-to-face-civil-lawsuit-over-2016-lansing-incident/

Quote:
Draymond Green reportedly to face civil lawsuit over 2016 Lansing incident

Last summer, just before going to camp for the Rio Olympics, Draymond Green got into some kind of altercation with Michigan State University football Jermaine Edmondson. Green allegedly slapped him during this. Green was arrested, but the prosecutors had better things to deal with, so Green’s charges were reduced to a noise violation, where Green had to pay a $500 fine and $60 restitution fee. Because it was a civil infraction, there is no “guilty” or “not guilty” plea entered. And that was the end of it.

Or so we thought.

According to Marc Spears of ESPN, a civil suit is about to stem from this.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, facing a civil lawsuit believed to be tied to an incident last July in which he allegedly slapped a former Michigan State football player, is confident things “will be resolved soon.”…

The expectation from Green’s camp is that the lawsuit is in response to a sequence of events last July that culminated in Green allegedly slapping then-Spartan player Jermaine Edmondson. The alleged slap followed a verbal dispute outside an East Lansing bar in the early morning of July 10, 2016, and was preceded by an encounter two nights earlier allegedly involving Edmondson, his girlfriend, Green and two of the NBA star’s associates.

I’m not going to speculate on the validity of the claim, or the motive for the suit, I was not hanging out in a Lansing bar last July and I am not in the plaintiff’s head.

I can say, as someone who spent years as a young reporter covering courts and police, these kinds of cases are tough for the plaintiff to prove his/her case and get paid. While in a civil case the standard to reach drops to “a preponderance of the evidence,” the plaintiff has to prove damages. The fact prosecutors wanted nothing to do with the case usually is a sign it’s a difficult case to make.

Now, a year later, the victim of an open hand slap is seeking a big settlement in civil court. Lakers fans, of all people, ought to know about that. I'm not defending any sort of violence. Celebrities, furthermore, ought to realize that even an action that would not seriously injure a person will get prosecuted for damages, even though the victim was not totally innocent. Green probably will learn an expensive lesson.

Draymond is in dire need of anger management counseling. He truly has a problem. I say this not only because of this incident. I say it because of how he handles himself in games.

He did much better this year, didn't he? This civil suit is from the same incident from last year, not a new one. I'm not excusing slapping anyone. I'm just pointing out that it is fallout from the same poor decision from last year, when someone got in his face.

Thanks, I didn't read the post date.

I don't rescind my saying he needs anger management counseling.

OTOH, if he calmed down it might affect his play, he plays on the edge.

Not sure what you're getting at. Did you feel the need to state that you're friends and you live a life that is different from mine? Am I somehow inferior to you because of this?

By beating up you didn't mean you hit women did you?

You know, if any of you were at a bar and someone taunted you with malice, you might pop them too.

If I gave someone personal krap in a public place, as a man, I expect a reaction. F that dude for looking for this. He should be publicly ridiculed. His whole shtick is soooooo lacking. He should be shamed as a man!!

I hate the Celtics, but I am NOT EVER going to give them grief in public. That is rude, no matter what way you look at it.

Green should have hit him harder.

From the press conference of the other half of the mother-daughter dual of famed ambulance chasers Allred-Bloom law firm, this couple sounded like they were "stalking" Draymond Green.

I got what you were say. I was wondering how one could go through life without ever having a fight? If you fight you'll beat up or get beat up, that's the way it is.

Yea, that's all I'm saying. I didn't go around smacking people for no reason. Sometimes you have to defend yourself.
