NBA Player Injured in Hit-and-Run
NBA player Chris Duhon claims he was intentionally struck by a car in Florida after he got into an argument with the driver.
Citing an Orlando Police Department report, The Associated Press writes that the former Los Angeles Lakers guard had been in a parking garage with his brother-in-law, Julio Hernandez, when he got into a “verbal altercation with a man in a black Lexus.”
The driver reportedly stepped out of his car for a moment, before getting behind the wheel and accelerating toward the two men.
Fox 35 News reports that Hernandez escaped harm, but Duhon was struck by the vehicle. The 31-year-old is said to have hit his head on the windshield, before the driver zoomed away.
Duhon, who was waived by the Lakers earlier this year, suffered minor injuries and was brought to the hospital.
Police say they are investigating the incident.
