Oklahoma City Thunder big man Kendrick Perkins and his brother-in-law Quincy Alpough have both been charged with assault after allegedly punching a woman and her brother outside a Houston nightclub July 20, according to multiple reports.
According to police reports, 28-year-old Perkins and his brother-in-law Alpough were outside Nox nightclub in Harris County, Texas, when they got into an altercation with the complainant, Mikeeta Cotton, after the vehicle she was driving collided with another car in a fender bender accident.
According to court documents, Alpough emerged from one of the vehicles and pushed Cotton. At that point, Cotton’s brother got out of the car “to check on her.” He told police that Perkins, who was a passenger in the other car, punched him in the head, causing him to fall to the ground.
Cotton alleges Perkins then punched her in the face with a closed fist and knocked her to the ground.
A third person in Cotton’s car claims Alpough elbowed her in the throat — knocking her unconscious. All three victims, whose story has been corroborated by additional witnesses, also say that a group of people then kicked them while they were on the ground.
The case was originally dismissed in July, but was re-opened after investigators decided there was enough evidence to charge Perkins and Alpough.
Perkins was charged with misdemeanor assault and released on $1,000 bond Thursday morning.
