Masai Ujiri Involved in Altercation Following Raptors Finals Win

The news keep coming on the Raptors front, with reports suggesting that Masai Ujiri is reportedly being investigated over a possible altercation with a sheriff’s deputy. The incident allegedly happened shortly after the end of last night’s game when the Raptors were crowned champions.

News outlets out of the Bay Area are reporting that the deputy was allegedly pushed and struck in the face by Ujiri after the officer denied Ujiri access to the court “because he didn’t have the proper credentials.”

A video has surfaced on social media showing the the moments after the alleged altercation as Kyle Lowry came to pull Ujiri away.

Ujiri was obviously not arrested, and on the contrary went on stage and on court to celebrate with his team, but it sounds as though the incident is being treated as a misdemeanour battery on an officer and the incident is being investigated further.

“The deputy did not know who the man was and asked for the credential, and that’s when he tried to push past our deputy and our deputy pushed him back,” Sgt. Ray Kelly, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office told some media outlets. “there was another push that kind of moved up and struck our deputy in the face. At that point, several bystanders intervened and the executive did ultimately get back onto the court without displaying credentials.”

It’s difficult to comment further on the incident without more information. Tensions were high and it’s difficult to believe that the General Manager of the championship team should be required to ‘show credentials,’ but regardless stay tuned for more on this.
