Hawks guard Rajon Rondo, girlfriend sued after alleged assault and 'heated parking lot dispute'
This week, a woman filed a lawsuit against Atlanta Hawks' security guard, Rajon Rondo, and his girlfriend.
The woman, Toktam Jorshari, is suing "for assault and assault, emotional stress and conspiracy," and is seeking more than $ 1 million in damages, the report said. Rondo has denied the allegations.
An alleged parking lot dispute
The lawsuit stems from an incident in July at an apartment complex in the Los Angeles area where both Jorshari and Rondo's girlfriend lived. Rondo has played for the Lakers for the past two seasons.
Rondo reportedly parked his car in a disabled space in the complex parking lot, but was not permitted to do so. Jorshari said she parked her car in an adjacent room to unload her new table, but in the process accidentally blocked access to Rondo's driver's door.
At that moment, Jorshari claimed that Rondo was "blown off the handle".
She claimed that Rondo yelled, "B - ch, why do you think you can park here?" at her and at one point "with one arm outstretched, pushed and pushed her against her vehicle." Johari also claims that Rondo's friend repeatedly physically assaulted her by beating her in the area of her head and torso.
Jorshari said she did not fight back and Rondo gave his girlfriend the "green light" to attack her. She said she sustained injuries, some of which resulted in "permanent disability," and had security footage of the incident.
Rondo's attorney Mark Baute denied the claims in a journal constitution statement.
"The case is unfounded," said Baute. “I saw the videotape. Mr. Rondo was courteous throughout the encounter, the applicant did not wear a mask, and was unstable and rude. We look forward to defending the case and winning. "
Rondo averaged 7.1 points and five assists per game for the Lakers during their title run last season. The 34-year-old signed a two-year, $ 15 million deal with the Hawks last off-season, making it his seventh NBA team in his 15-year career in the league.
