Knicks legend Charles Oakley has filed a civil suit stemming from an incident involving his ejection from a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden in February, reports Ian Begley of ESPN.
The suit names Knicks owner James Dolan, Madison Square Garden Company, and MSG Sports & Entertainment.
Oakley, who was arrested for five charges in a scuffle with Dolan and MSG security, agreed to a plea deal in August when he accepted a conditional dismissal agreement that would require him not to go to Madison Square Garden for one year.
Alex Spiro, Oakley's attorney, told reporters last month that Oakley was planning to pursue a civil case against Dolan.
Dolan banned Oakley from Madison Square Garden for a brief period of time before the ban was lifted when the two of them met with Michael Jordan and NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
At a Knicks vs. Clippers game on Feb. 8, Oakley allegedly yelled insults directed at Dolan and was arrested and ejected. He rejected a plea deal in June, but agreed to another deal two months later because he told reporters he wanted to move on and not lose taxpayers' money.
Oakley, 53, spent 10 seasons with the Knicks, from 1988 to 1998. In his 19-year NBA career, he averaged 9.7 points and 9.5 rebounds per game and was named an All-Star in 1994.
