Thabo Sefolosha, Atlanta Hawks player, is found not guilty on three misdemeanor charges, his attorney said Friday.
In approximately 30 minutes, the New York jury came to the decision, starting Thursday and finishing Friday morning, attorney Alex Spiro said.
Back in April, Sefolosha claimed that police caused his season-ending leg injury after he left a nightclub in New York. Sefolosha suffered a fractured fibula and ligament damage when he and then-teammate Pero Antic were arrested near the scene of the stabbing of Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland and two other women early April 8, according to CNN.
The Hawks player and Antic were not involved in the stabbing incident, although, they were charged with misdemeanors, including disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration.
The charges against Antic were dismissed.
After the incident, there was a released video which revealed a group of police officers arresting Sefolosha and taking him to the ground. The video also shows an officer within that group getting out a baton and extending it near him, but what may have caused the injury is not clear in the video.
