HOUSTON - Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins is accused of beating a woman and her brother outside a Houston nightclub, according to court documents.
Perkins posted a $1,000 bond Thursday morning on a misdemeanor assault charge.
The documents are comprised of testimony from the three alleged victims, supported by a witness, and state the altercation began when Perkins' vehicle and another car backed into each other outside The Nox July 20.
One of Perkins' accusers said she first got out of her vehicle and was met by another woman, whom she described as aggressive and heated.
Perkins' brother-in-law, Quincy Alpough, then exited the car, pushing the first alleged victim and yelling, "That's my cousin!" according to the documents.
As the incident further escalated, Perkins also left the vehicle. The alleged victims said at that point the 6-foot-10, 270-pound athlete came barreling around the car and "swung wide with a right fist," punching one of the three, a man, in the head before doing the same to his sister.
Alpough also became physical, according to testimony, striking the third alleged victim in the throat with his elbow. Finally, the documents state that "a swarm of people along with the defendants" stomped and kicked the three on the ground repeatedly.
The Thunder organization appears to still be in the fact-finding portion of the process, evidenced by a statement issued from OKC general manager Sam Presti: "We were made aware of the allegations and take this matter seriously. We are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time."
