NBA’s Gerald Wilkins Accused of Punching Woman In Gas Station Altercation
Former NBA player Gerald Wilkins allegedly hit a woman and man at an Atlanta gas station around 3 a.m. – and that’s why he was arrested for battery charges, TMZ Sports has learned.
We broke history … Gerald Wilkins – younger brother of NBA legend Dominique wilkins – was arrested on August 18 and faces 3 criminal charges, including assault and battery.
Now we’ve got the police report that sets out the allegations against him … and that’s not great.
Wilkins told cops he had an argument with a carpool driver who refused to let him into her car unless he ordered correctly through the app.
The driver claims Wilkins was so heated he punched him in the shoulder – and that’s when 2 male witnesses jumped in to smash him.
One of the male witnesses claims he was punched in the face by Wilkins during the melee.
A third witness, who was pumping gasoline at the time, appeared to confirm the driver’s story … that Wilkins was the instigator.
Wilkins says he called 911 and claimed to be the real victim – telling the operator he was attacked.
But the cops didn’t believe Gerald’s story – and ultimately stopped him.
Records show he faces 3 criminal charges – 2 counts of common misdemeanor and 1 count of criminal trespass.
Wilkins was a 2nd round pick in the 1985 NBA Draft and went on to play for the Knicks, Cleveland Cavs, Grizzlies, and Orlando Magic … before finally retiring in 1999.
