The Knicks have fired their top security chief -- two days after an incident at Madison Square Garden where former-Knick Charles Oakley was involved in an altercation with multiple security guards.
Frank Benedetto, who was the senior vice president for security, was fired Friday morning, reports Murray Weiss of DNAinfo New York.
An MSG spokesman declined comment to DNAinfo, citing their policy of not speaking about former employees.
During the incident, Oakley was taken to the ground by security guards after assaulting two of them, handcuffed, and arrested. He was released Wednesday night.
Oakley, during an interview with Stephen A. Smith on ESPN Radio on Thursday, said he never approached owner James Dolan before the incident, adding that MSG employees have told him that Dolan must be informed each time Oakley is at a game.
The Knicks issued a press release on Thursday, saying that everything Oakley had said since the incident was "pure fiction."
