NBA All-Star Game Post Party Features 90s-Inspired Violence
Nineties has-been rap mogul Suge Knight was simply minding his own business outside a NBA All-Star weekend party at the W Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, when he was noodle-legged by a man who alleges he is rapper Akon’s manager.
It was later discovered that Robert Canes Jr. is merely a member of Akon’s posse who suffers from illusions of grandeur.
The pictures above show a comatose Knight being attended to by a magenta thong and two presumed members of his lynch mob taking post-knockout frustration out on an innocent bystander.
We could just be making this up, but the fight supposedly broke out because Knight declared West Coast supremacy while Canes Jr., a staunch Notorious B.I.G. discipline, was pledging allegiance to the East. The result was Knight getting KO’d for the second time in nine months. Canes Jr. was arrested and charged with one count of felony aggravated assault and another man for misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
The following is the report filed by the Scottsdale Police Department:
“At about 3:30 AM, police were called to a private party on the second floor (pool area) of the W Hotel. Hotel security personnel called police when they became concerned that there would be a fight between two groups of guests having heated words in the VIP area. Officers arrived and watched a group of about 6-8 guests exiting the VIP area. They saw one person, later identified as Robert Carnes Jr., punch the victim in the head two times. Officers deployed Tasers to quell the fight that erupted. Officers arrested CARNES Jr. and ANDERSON for assault and disorderly conduct. The victim was transported to SHC-Osborn hospital where he was treated for facial injuries. CARNES Jr. reported to officers that he is employed as the business manager for singer “Akon”.
