Former NBA Star Dominique Wilkins Gets Into Fight With Suit Designer Over Unpaid Debt Inside Arena

Video After Jump

During his playing days, Dominique Wilkins was known as the 'Human Highlight Film'......none of his highlights were quite like this however.

A bizarre incident at Philips Arena left Hawks legend Dominque Wilkins fending off an attacker at Thursday night's game.

Police said after Wednesday night's Atlanta-Orlando game at Philips Arena, while Wilkins was doing a live television broadcast, Rashan Michel started cursing at him. After the broadcast, Wilkins began walking across the basketball court, when Michel began following him.

Investigators said a Philips Arena security officer tried to stop Michel, grabbing his arm. Police said Michel started swinging his arm and hit the officer and Wilkins.

Michel, an ex-referee and clothing store owner, has been charged with one count of simple battery. Witnesses say he accused Wilkins of owing him money for suits purchased several years back.

According to police, Michel said he had made dress suits for Wilkins for $17,000. Police said Wilkins would not confirm Michel's allegations.

A MySpace page for Michel shows the suit maker posing with a number of NBA stars, President Barack Obama, and others.

Michel bonded out of the Fulton County Jail around 2 a.m. Thursday on a $1,000 bond.

Hawks vice president of public relations Arthur Triche said the team was aware of the altercation and the suspect's arrest, but had no additional comment.

Michel appeared on V103's Frank and Wanda Morning Show Thursday morning.

He said Wilkins he had filed suit against Wilkins about three months ago, saying he was owed about $13,000.

Michel said he told Wilkins that he could take his time paying him, since Wilkins faced some family issues. Michel said he went to the arena Wednesday night to discuss the matter, but all of a sudden, he said, Wilkins punched him first. In addition, Michel said he had contacted a lawyer over the matter.
