Knicks F Kyle O'Quinn will not have charges pressed against him by the Manhattan district attorney's office from an altercation in Zuccotti Park last May, per NY Daily News' Christina Carrega.
The incident occurred on May 22, 2016 where O'Quinn allegedly assaulted 23-year-old Shakaira Elie outside Zuccotti Park in downtown Manhattan.
In her Brooklyn Supreme Court lawsuit, Elie said O'Quinn struck a conversation with her in the Trinity Place Bar and Restaurant, which made his girlfriend angry. She went on to assault Elie outside the bar.
Elie and her friends proceeded to assault O'Quinn's girlfriend and take her purse at Zuccotti Park, according to court documents. Elie said that her purse was stolen by O'Quinn and she reported the brawl to the police.
The incident was caught on a surveillance tape which allegedly showed O'Quinn throwing a punch and kicking Elie.
Elie wasn't happy to hear about the district attorney's decision on the case saying, "I can't believe that this is OK with law enforcement -- the police and the Manhattan District Attorney's office. I am hurt and deeply saddened by this."
In his counterclaim, O'Quinn said Elie grabbed his genitals and caused a scene which his friends at the bar witnessed. He told them to ignore her.
Elie still has a civil suit pending against O'Quinn.
The 6-foot-10 veteran averaged 6.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and shot 52.1 percent from the field in 15.6 minutes per game last season with the Knicks.
