Rondo stops Fitzgerald and nudges Jorshari with his elbow towards the front of their car. Then everything escalates when Fitzgerald then throws punches at Jorshari and Rondo just steps back and watches.
According to her attorneys Eddie Tehrani & Arnold Gross from the state law firm, Jorshari was the victim of this situation and has a tough case.
According to TMZ, they stated, “In the NBA, unnecessary and excessive contact is considered a Flagrant 2 foul, which can result in a fine, expulsion and possible suspension of a player. Outside of the NBA, such behavior is considered attack and battery. No man should ever pick up a woman, ESPECIALLY an NBA basketball player of superior size and strength. The video speaks for itself.
