Nigerian-born President of Toronto Raptors Masai Ujiri under investigation for allegedly assaulting a Deputy after Championship Win (watch video)

Nigerian-born President of Toronto Raptors president, Masai Ujiri is  under investigation for allegedly pushing a sheriff’s deputy who stopped him from going to celebrate his team’s NBA Finals win against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday.


The incident occurred when Ujiri attempted to enter the court for the post-game celebration without proper credentials, Sgt. Ray Kelly of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office told CBS San Francisco. 


Police described the incident as “a push that went upward and struck him [the deputy] in the face.” Ujiri eventually made his way onto the court for the celebration with the help of Raptors guard Kyle Lowry. Kelly said deputies decided it wasn’t in their best interest to arrest Ujiri on national television as he celebrated his team’s championship. 


Ujiri is being investigated for suspicion of misdemeanor battery on an officer. No arrest has been made, but the sheriff’s department will submit a complaint to the Raptors and local prosecutors, Kelly said.
