Checkered Past


Oakland Deputy who had Altercation with Ujiri was Convicted of Fraud

More news is coming out on the alleged NBA Finals altercation between Toronto Raptors President Masai Ujiri and the Alameda County Sheriff deputy.

Over the weekend, San Mateo County court records revealed that sheriff deputy in question, Alan Francis Strickland was previously charged with felony insurance fraud and making false statements back in 1994. Strickland pled no contest to the allegations.

“Strickland ended up pleading no contest to misdemeanor insurance fraud on Dec. 7, 2005, court records show,” KTVU reported on its website. “The false statement charge, a misdemeanour, was dropped in exchange for the no-contest plea, which has the same legal effect as pleading guilty. The fraud charge was discovered when Strickland was applying to be a San Mateo police officer in 2005 — a job he did not get, KTVU learned after reviewing court documents and investigators’ notes at the time.”

Following Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Strickland filed a lawsuit against Ujiri, citing assault and battery along with physical injuries to his head, jaw, chin, and teeth. The Raptors claimed the allegations are “baseless and without merit”, while Ujiri called the suit “malicious” and that he will make sure the “truth will come out”.

The Raptors earned their first NBA championship following a Game 6 victory.
