NBA player Thabo Sefolosha doesn't have to worry about criminal charges heading into the 2015-2016 season after a New York City jury found him not guilty Friday of resisting arrest. That decision stems from a scuffle with police back in April.
Sefolosha was arrested outside a New York nightclub after a stabbing. During the trial, he claimed officers got physical when he tried to offer a panhandler some money. Officers testified Sefolosha ignored their orders while they investigated the stabbing. (Video via YouTube / Kris Willis)
TMZ later posted a video of the Atlanta Hawks player being thrown to the ground by police officers. Sefolosha suffered a season-ending leg injury during his arrest.
