Rockets’ James Harden Being Sued For Punching Heckling Lakers Fan
Up-and-coming superstar James Harden of the Houston Rockets is in trouble and set to pay a considerable amount after an incident in Los Angeles has come to light.
Apparently, Harden is being sued by a Los Angeles Lakers fan that was supposedly punched by the one-time All-Star in early November outside of a nightclub in West Hollywood according to TMZ.com:
According to the lawsuit, Harden was on his way out of Greystone Manor nightclub in West Hollywood November 3rd — riding in the back seat of some SUV — when he rolled the window down to greet fans.
That’s when a man named Barak Golan says he shouted at Harden, “Kobe owns your ass!” and Harden allegedly socked him in the face.
Harden didn’t stop at simply punching the heckling Lakers fans as he also flipped off Golan as his SUV sped away. Clearly, Harden wasn’t in the right frame of mind thinking he’s simply runaway without any consequence.
As a result of the incident, Harden is being sued by Golan for assault and battery.
With the lawsuit becoming public, Harden will definitely think twice about making the same mistake again. An ill-advised decision to say the least that could’ve had some severe consequences.
